Big Image
Generic Name: Diphenhydramine/Pseudoephedrine Liquid (dye-fen-HYE-dra-meen/soo-doe-e-FED-rin)
Brand Name: Examples include Benadryl Allergy and Sinus Liquid and Children's Benadryl-D Allergy and Sinus

Children's Benadryl-D Allergy and Sinus Liquid is used for:

Temporarily relieving symptoms of hay fever, allergies, or the common cold, including nasal congestion, runny nose, sneezing, itching of the nose and throat, and itchy/watery eyes. It may also be used for other conditions as determined by your doctor.

Children's Benadryl-D Allergy and Sinus Liquid is an antihistamine and decongestant combination.
