First of all,thanks for asking this question,I work it out and give you a simple answer.Benadryl is also an antihistamine so it is not recommended to take both because you are doubling up the antihistamine. If the Nyquil has no antihistamine in it then you can take both and you most likely will sleep very well. However,on the other hand,it is not advisable because benadryl makes people drousy and nyquil can make people drunk and if u have double downers that is not good. Here I think it is for your reference and maybe not a correct answer or sometimes there are a variety of answers for the same question. So here are more information as below and it could be helpful.

Is it safe to take nyquil and benadryl together?

First of all,are you aware that Nyquil has Benadryl in its generic form ? Check it on the bottle if does,it is not recommended to take both because you are doubling up the antihistamine.So I highly suggest you ask your doctor first, since everyone has a different body chemistry. Also prolonged use could damage your liver and kidneys, so don’t plan on doing this every night unless you like dialysis and liver transplants.

What happened when you take benadryl with NyQuil?

The Nyquil or Benadril are drugs which reduce sings of cold, cough and fever and are helping to sleep over night during you¡äre sick. You should be fine as long as you don’t drink alcohol along with those. But realistically, the NyQuil by itself should be enough, the Benadryl will probably just make you sleepier than you will be already.
