Happy 80th Benadryl 🥳

Updated: Jun 13, 2023

Ever had an Allergic Reaction? Mosquito Bite? Allergies?

If so, you might be interested to know that Benadryl, the important medicine known for its efficacy in managing allergic reactions, was invented 80 years ago this month. This significant discovery was made by George Rieveschl, a researcher at the University of Cincinnati in June 1943.

For the past eight decades, millions of people worldwide have experienced the remarkable benefits of Benadryl. The active ingredient in Benadryl is a compound called diphenhydramine which effectively alleviates symptoms of allergic reactions, including hay fever and hives, by reducing itching, sneezing, and watery eyes.

Benadryl, like countless other modern-day medicines, owes its existence to the unwavering dedication of scientists, researchers, and clinical trial participants. Their tireless work has paved the way for breakthroughs in medical science.
