Patient: I’ve been taking benadryl since I was very young so I have noticed it doesn’t work when I only take one because they have the same active ingredient. I do have a dry mouth now.

Doctor: No but you should not overdose for anything..
Anyway dryness of mouth will happen, but let me know if you develop any other symptoms.
