Medicine Woes

I have found out that US Benadryl is only available as Nytol and it's behind the counter so when I run out of mine very shortly, I will need a sleep aid. I guess I do use it before I go to bed so my skin doesn't itch, but I don't think they want people to take it daily like I do.

What they call Benadryl here is actually Zyrtec in the US, making my previous statements about the unreasonableness of drug prices slightly incorrect because one tablet is around $.30, while in the US it's closer to $3 if you don't have insurance. That would be all fine and good if Zyrtec did squat for my itchy skin but I need Benadryl.
