Reviews for ValuMeds Allergy Medicine (600 Tablets) Antihistamine, Diphenhydramine HCl 25 mg | Children and Adults | Relieve Itchy Eyes, Runny Nose, Sneezing
People say Valumeds is really similar to Benadryl.
A few thoughts to share....
What a great find. I read reviews on everything I consider purchasing to make decisions on which product to consider. Having read many reviews here, I found some concerned with the fact this product has talc in it. So, I did some research and thought I would share my findings. Yes, talc is a carcinogenic, but so is titanium dioxide which is in both this generic form and benadryl. Talc is also used in multivitamins, gum, rice, etc. (Long list) Talc used in consumable products is food grade. It is not the same grade as talc used in talcum powder, makeup etc. I respect everyone's right to choose, but just thought I would share a snippet of what I found. I did order this brand. I also want to share that the bottle arrived within 24 hrs, sealed and expiration date is 5/2023. We are happy to have found ValueMeds generic benadryl for the various needs in our household, equally effective as Benadryl for much less money.
I bought these for my dog, who takes Benadryl ...
I bought these for my dog, who takes Benadryl for her allergies. These seem to work just as well as the name brand and saved me some money. I will definitely purchase again.
Arrived quickly and they work well, as expected
They're generic Benadryl and are my last line of defense for miserable allergy symptoms...puffy, itchy, red eyes, runny nose, scratchy throat. I take generic Zyrtec daily, but there's been a serious uptick in allergens in my environment. These restore my will to live and let me sleep and lead a somewhat normal life, albeit with a bit more grogginess. Thank goodness for Benadryl and its generic equivalent, which has been around for decades...for about a penny a dose.
They work the same as the big brands!
As a major allergy sufferer, I often take at least 2 allergy pills a day so you can imagine how living around a lot of trees and plants has hit my wallet every time I have to go to the store and spend more than $14 for only about 12-24 Benadryl pills. Convinced there had to be something a little more cost effective for someone who refuses to get an allergy shot and would just like to be able to buy allergy meds in bulk so I can use them when needed, I took a chance on these and I highly recommend. These pills seem to have the same ingredients as Benadryl and are pretty fast acting. There are a lot of pills in this little bottle and I’ve had mine for a little over two months and taken 2 pills almost daily and have barely put a dent in the bottle. These also arrived very quickly (next day) and the cost was under $10! I absolutely recommend for people like me who don’t want to spend $30 bucks on allergy pills every single month just for the name brand!
Night time allergies are gone.
I'll keep this simple. I have skin allergies, and at night I'm too busy sleeping to worry about itching my legs because this stuff knocks me out. I am a light sleeper. I sleep alone. I take it two hours before I go to bed cause no one wants an off brand Benadryl hangover. If I'm sleeping with my boyfriend I go to another room because I can hear a squirrel fart. Stuff makes you drowsy but being a light sleeper you are still alert. Would recommend if you sleep alone with allergies.
You Need Them in Your Medicine Cabinet
These tablets are identical to the Benadryl brand tablets. They work quickly, they’re effective, and they are easy to swallow. I always have these tablets around because you just never know when you’re going to need them, and when you need them, you NEED them. Diphenhydramine works for many things besides allergies. It also works well for nausea. I take two anytime I have to take ibuprofen because I can never keep it down. It also works better for colds than most OTC cold medication. My son’s doctor always recommend diphenhydramine for basic colds (sneezing, the sniffles, stuffy nose). He says it works better than cold medicine and I agree. I also like having these around because I have a dog and diphenhydramine works well with pets if they’re suffering an allergic reaction (dosage is by weight, not by the instructions provided on the bottle). They are as essential as Tylenol, and buying them like this saves you some money.
Did you know.....
Diphenhydramine hydrochloride is the same thing as Benadryl! And even if you use a non-drowsy 12 or 24 hour allergy medicine, every household should have this on hand for the emergency case of hives. I'm no doctor, but this has saved me several trips to the emergency room. At this price and quantity, I share with my friends. They all have allergies, too. This is also the preferred sleep preparation for geriatric settings.
What A Great Value - Same ingredient as Benadryl
What a value for $ .01 per pill! Compared to the name brand at up to $ .25 per pill and most store brands which run about $ .03 per pill. There is no difference so why pay the extra money. 800 pills = over a year's supply for most. Pros: * Same ingredient as the name brands * Small pills are easier to swallow * Works well as a sleep aid - just like the name brand does Hint: Keep that old Benadryl small bottle to put in your backpack or purse and refill it from this bottle.
Not expired, great price
If you use a lot of Benadryl, this is kind of a must. Between me and my dogs, someone is taking an antihistamine every day. At $4 for 24 at the drugstore, it gets ridiculous. This was a terrific value for the number of pills. The bottle I received had an expiration date in 2021, which was my only concern. It works as it should, looks like the brand name, arrives quickly, and is super cheap for bulk antihistamine users—what's not to love?
