Frequently Asked Questions

medicine-related

We know how important it is to know what you're putting inside your body. Please visit this link for a PDF of full drug facts for Cabinet Allergy Relief.

For those with celiac disease or a gluten intolerance, we know how hard it can be to find safe medications and products you can trust. Cabinet is the first healthcare company to conduct batch-level quality testing through a 3rd party lab for carcinogens, gluten, and purity. This ensures that every batch of medicine that goes to market is high quality and free of harmful ingredients.

Cabinet Allergy Relief is certified gluten-free and 100% free from known carcinogens. You can view our 3rd party certificate of analysis at this link.

For the curious consumer: Batch-level testing is not common practice among manufacturers. A great example of the lack of testing in this space is the massive Zanac (randitidine) recall in 2019 and 2020. Manufacturers recalled ranitidine (both brand and generic) after a cancer-causing chemical called N-Nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA) was discovered in every medicine lot.

Cabinet Allergy Relief, a FDA-approved generic alternative to Benadryl® or Banophen®, is a popular over-the-counter (OTC) medicine used to combat allergies. The active ingredient, diphenhydramine hydrochloride, belongs to a group of medications called antihistamines. Antihistamines work by blocking the action of histamine, which is the substance in the body that causes those unpleasant allergic symptoms and reactions.

Adults and children over the age of 12 can take one (1) to two (2) tablets every four to six hours as needed for allergy symptoms. Children ages six to 12 can take one (1) tablet every four to six hours as needed for allergy symptoms. Do not take more than six (6) doses of Cabinet Allergy Relief in 24 hours. This means no more than 12 tablets (or 300 mg) a day for adults and young children over the age of 12, and no more than six (6) tablets (or 150 mg) a day for children ages six to 12. This product is not to be used by children under the age of six.

For an adult or child over the age of 12, taking one (1) or two (2) tablets is entirely up to you. If you have severe allergies, then you may feel it is best to take two (2) tablets instead of one (1). One of the most common side effects of diphenhydramine is drowsiness, and it can make some people more sleepy than others. If you are prone to drowsiness, it may be a good idea to start off with one (1) tablet. It is important to keep in mind that you should not take more than six (6) doses of Cabinet Allergy Relief in 24 hours. In case of an overdose, make sure to contact a Poison Control Center (1-800-222-1222) or seek medical attention immediately.

Cabinet Allergy Relief is a medicine that can help relieve symptoms of allergy, allergic reaction, hay fever, and the common cold. These symptoms include: itchiness, hives or rash, itchy or watery eyes, itchy or runny nose, stuffy nose (rhinitis), sinus pressure, coughing, and sneezing. It is also commonly used as a nighttime sleep aid, available as Cabinet Sleep Aid.

Fun fact! Diphenhydramine can also be used off-label to prevent or treat symptoms of nausea and vomiting associated with motion sickness.

Do not use Cabinet Allergy Relief to make a child feel sleepy. Cabinet Allergy Relief tablets should not be used with any other product that contains diphenhydramine, even one that is used on skin (i.e. topical diphenhydramine cream). Do not take Cabinet Allergy Relief together with Cabinet Sleep Aid, as they contain the same ingredient. Combining diphenhydramine products can cause side effects to add up, so it is best to separate different products by four to six hours. Other than drowsiness, possible side effects of diphenhydramine include dry mouth, constipation, and blurred vision.

It is important to check in with your doctor or healthcare provider before taking Cabinet Allergy Relief if you have a breathing problem (such as emphysema or chronic bronchitis), glaucoma, trouble urinating as a result of an enlarged prostate gland or other medical conditions. If you are currently taking sedatives, tranquilizers, or any other medications that make you sleepy, ask a doctor or local pharmacist prior to taking any tablets.

Combining alcohol with diphenhydramine can result in significant drowsiness, which can put you in a dangerous situation. You should avoid alcoholic drinks while taking Cabinet Allergy Relief.

Ask your doctor before using Cabinet Allergy Relief if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Low doses of diphenhydramine are generally considered to be safe to use during pregnancy and lactation. Lactation studies have shown that some of the medication can get into breast milk and affect your breastfeeding infant. It is always important to weigh out the benefits and risks of taking this product with a healthcare provider.

In addition to its desired effects, diphenhydramine may cause some less desirable side effects. Everyone is different, so some people may experience no side effects at all, others may experience mild side effects, and a small number of people may experience rare or more serious adverse effects.

Some side effects of diphenhydramine include: dry mouth/nose/throat, drowsiness, dizziness, nausea and vomiting, loss of appetite, constipation, headache, nervousness, and muscle weakness. Call your doctor immediately if you experience any vision problems, difficulty urinating, or painful urination. Some patients may experience side effects that are not on this list. Check in with your healthcare provider if you have questions or experience concerning side effects. Always check with your doctor or pharmacist prior to taking Cabinet Allergy Relief if you have ever had an allergic reaction to any of the ingredients this product contains.

For all questions and concerns related to animal care, please contact your local veterinarian. Medicine dosages and recommendations for dogs and other furry friends are generally based on weight, breed, and medical history. Checking in with your veterinarian is the best plan.
