Benadryl vs sudafed (non drowsy) alien vs predator  Reply with quote  

Good analysis of the movies. But may I point out something I learned in the hospital the last time? Benadryl makes you fall asleep. They use it in place of Trazidone. Trazidone makes you look like a snake (heavy lidded eyes) if you don't fall asleep within a certain time frame. Sudafed dries you up, wires you up and you don't risk the oft chance that you'll be eaten while you're asleep. So Chris if you've got a cold we really don't want you to get eaten by either by falling asleep. Mr. Green

There's always an exception to the rule. Benadryl doesn't make me fall asleep. None of that class of drug makes me fall asleep. Sometimes I wish they would.

Wouldn't lethargic sleepy aliens be a good thing?

Not in an action movie... What if Arnold was smoking pot during the origninal Predator (I'm thinking a performance like Brad Pitt's in True Romance)? The predator wouldn't have even paid any attention to him. Then who would be governator?

Sudafed makes me sleepy and nauseous. I'd rather have a runny nose.
