You’ve probably heard of how drinking a lot of water can help you eliminate certain drugs from your body faster. For example, grapefruit juice is often recommended as a way to flush methamphetamine out of your system faster. But what about Benadryl? Should you follow the same rules and drink lots of water after taking it? Or is there a different strategy that’s more effective in flushing it out of your system sooner? It turns out that drinking lots of water isn’t going to have an effect on how long Benadryl remains in your bloodstream. Rather, the trick with Benadryl is to take it with another drug that also has an impact on its detoxification pathway. In this article, we will explain why and share some tips on how to flush Benadryl out of your system faster when you need to pass a drug test as soon as possible.
How Long Does Benadryl Stay in Your System?
Benadryl has a very short half-life of only 6-8 hours. This means that it clears out of your system very quickly and metabolizes quickly. However, there is a major problem with the way Benadryl is metabolized. Benadryl is metabolized primarily through CYP2D6. Many people have genetic variants that affect the way their bodies metabolize drugs. Those with genetic differences are often called “slow metabolizers”. If you are a slow metabolizer of Benadryl, it could take up to 10 days to flush out of your system. On the other hand, those who are normal or fast metabolizers of Benadryl can expect it to be completely flushed out of their system in just 2 days!
Tip 1: Use Baking Soda to Flush Benadryl Out of Your System
If you are a slow metabolizer, then you should follow the same general strategy as fast metabolizers: take Benadryl with grapefruit juice or a lot of water. The trick is that you should also add baking soda to the mix. Baking soda is sodium bicarbonate and has a wide range of benefits and uses. For example, it is often used in treating indigestion and heartburn by neutralizing stomach acid. Baking soda is also often used as a hair care product for removing products, oils, and minerals from the hair without damaging it or causing any kind of skin irritation. Nowadays, baking soda is also often recommended as a detoxification agent. When you take baking soda, your digestive system breaks it down into sodium and baking soda. Since sodium is a mineral, it is able to cross your blood-brain barrier and enter your brain cells. Once in your brain cells, sodium can regulate water levels and function as a neurotransmitter. This is how baking soda helps you detox faster: it stimulates your brain cells and flushes out Benadryl faster.
Tip 2: Take Vitamin B with Your Benadryl
If you are a slow metabolizer, the first thing you should do to speed up your Benadryl detoxification is to take it with grapefruit juice or a lot of water. The second thing you should add to your Benadryl cocktail is vitamin B. Vitamin B is a group of eight different vitamins: thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, pantothenic acid, vitamin B6, biotin, vitamin B12, and folic acid. The most important of these vitamins for Benadryl detoxification is vitamin B6. Vitamin B6 is a coenzyme that helps your body metabolize drugs and break them down faster. If you take vitamin B6 with Benadryl, it can help you detoxify faster, especially if you are a slow metabolizer of Benadryl. Additionally, vitamin B also interacts with gene expressions and can potentially help people who are normal or fast metabolizers of Benadryl detoxify even faster by altering the rate at which their genes work.
Tip 3: Mix in Vitamins and Minerals During Your Flush
If you are a slow metabolizer, the next thing you should add to your Benadryl cocktail is a cocktail of different vitamins and minerals. A lot of people are surprised to find out that Benadryl is a drug, but it is. Drugs are molecules that are designed to trigger biological reactions in our bodies and brains. That is why when you take drugs like Benadryl, they trigger a specific metabolic pathway in your body. The metabolic pathway of Benadryl is CYP2D6. To help you detox even faster, you can add in the metabolic pathway vitamins and minerals. For example, vitamin C and vitamin B2 are both involved in the metabolic pathway of Benadryl. Vitamin C is also a water-soluble vitamin that can help you hydrate better. This is because water-soluble vitamins and minerals are able to pass through your digestive system, blood vessels, and urinary tract without being metabolized. They basically act as a flusher, helping to push toxins out of your body faster.
Tip 4: Add a Good Quality Detox Shampoo While Showering
If you are a slow metabolizer and you want to speed up your Benadryl detoxification even more, then the last thing you should add to your Benadryl cocktail is a good quality detox shampoo. A lot of people are surprised to learn that your hair can pick up metabolites and drugs in your body and act as a toxic reservoir. If you are a slow metabolizer, your hair can contain metabolites from Benadryl and other drugs you’ve taken in the past. To help you flush out your hair, you can add a good quality detox shampoo to your Benadryl cocktail. A good quality detox shampoo is designed to help you “wash out” the metabolites from your hair and make them easier for you to flush out through your urine. While detox shampoos are not a perfect solution, they do help many people pass drug tests and are a great way to add an extra boost to your Benadryl detoxification.
Tip 5: Add Good Quality Detox Patches While Sleeping
If you are a slow metabolizer and you want to speed up your Benadryl detoxification even more, then the last thing you can add to your Benadryl cocktail is good-quality detox patches. A lot of people are surprised to learn that your body sweats while you are sleeping. In fact, the fluid in your sweat glands is actually more concentrated than the fluid in your blood cells. This is why you should add detox patches to your Benadryl cocktail while you are sleeping. A good quality detox patch is designed to help you “sweat out” the metabolites from Benadryl from your sweat. While detox patches are not a perfect solution, they do help many people pass drug tests and are a great way to add an extra boost to your Benadryl detoxification.
Benadryl is a short-acting antihistamine used to treat allergies, coughs, motion sickness, and insomnia. It is most commonly found in liquid or pill form, and it is often combined with other medications. Many people use Benadryl as a sleep aid because of its ability to create drowsiness and calm anxiety. While Benadryl does have some sedative properties, it is not a good long-term sleep aid. Benadryl can also cause blurry vision and muscle weakness. It is also important to note that Benadryl withdrawal will occur in some people after long-term use.
Q: What can I overdose on?
A: Benadryl can come in pill or liquid form and it makes ingesting too much dangerous. When taking Benadryl orally, most of the dose will get passed via your urine. However, the side effects are unknown for anyone overdosing on oral Benadryl.
Q: What is a Naproxen (Naprosyn, Anaprox) overdose?
A: An individual that takes 8 grams of naproxen along with an antihistamine like Benadryl could end up with very dangerous side effects such as heart failure, decreased blood pressure, coma, and even death if it is taken in much higher doses. Anyone taking high percentages of Naprosyn (2 grams to 10 grams/day), and some who take other anti-lesin (“NAPRALERT”) should follow well over-the-counter food safety guidelines daily while using any medications including naproxen.
