Prisons Use Benadryl as Sleep Aid to Knock Out Prisoners Choose Sheep

In My Life

According to an unnamed source, the allergy medication of Benadryl is commonly used in prisons as a sleeping aid for inmates. The antihistamine product for allergies and colds seems to have double-duty for prison inmates who receive the distributed meds. I don't know about you, but I can't even take the medication -- since one dosage is technically two tablets, and taking just one pill leaves me in a state of feeling like nearly crawling to bed is a necessity. The effects are that I haven't slept in months.
The med's benefits are clear, if you happen to be incarcerated and need some deep sleep, Benadryl's your man. But in some correctional facilities -- and considering those nearby prison inmates -- it could send shudders down the spine to consider what may occur. In those circumstances, maybe counting sheep is the best bet during a prison stint.
