How Do We Confirm Benadryl Can Mask Anaphylactic Reaction?
It has been posted on this site that Benadryl can mask the symptoms of an anaphylactic reaction. This makes sense to me. If I give my PA son his asthma puffers when he's in anaphylactic shock rather than an Epi-pen, it would APPEAR that his breathing difficulties were easing. However, how do we actually confirm that this is, in fact, true? I know that because it did make sense to me, I have posted that information in posts myself and now I'm questioning whether that was okay to do. I'd like for this not be a Benadryl vs. Epi-pen thread, 'cus we already have one going like that, but actually, information on how we can confirm whether this is, in fact, true. Thanks! Best wishes!
