Teens, across the country, are accepting the Benadryl Challenge on TikTok which Dr. Stokes Peebles, a professor of medicine at Vanderbilt University, warns could have deadly results.
According to the report on WKRN-TV; In this new game, teens encourage each other to take as much allergy medicine as needed to hallucinate. Some teens report taking a dozen, or more, pills before “tripping out”.
“Hallucinations can certainly occur from a Benadryl overdose on the way to having coma,” said Dr. Peebles.
He also warns there’s a very fine line between gaining that desired effect and devastating results. He says the person can die or can have long-lasting side effects.
