If you’re desperate for a good night’s sleep or you need its anti-allergen properties, Benadryl can be a godsend.
Of course, one of the times it’s needed most is at bedtime, when most stores are closed!
Therefore, you may be wondering – does 7-Eleven sell Benadryl, and how much does it cost?
In this article, we’ll cover everything that you need to know!
Does 711 Sell Benadryl?
Yes, 711 sells Benadryl at most of their locations. It is also available for delivery when ordering through 7-Eleven’s website, or by using a delivery service such as Instacart.
Therefore, you will be able to purchase Benadryl at any of the hours your local 7-11 store is open.
Benadryl is an over–the–counter antihistamine that is used to treat allergy symptoms, such as runny nose, watery eyes, and sneezing. However, it is commonly used as a sleep aid as well, helping many people (even those without allergies) to fall asleep and stay asleep throughout the night.
Because so many people suffer from insomnia and allergy symptoms, 7-Eleven keeps Benadryl readily available within their stores.
What Brands Of Benadryl Does 7-11 Carry?
Currently, only the actual ‘Benadryl’ brand is carried within 7-11 stores. However, it also carries Tylenol PM and Advil PM, both of which contain the same ingredient in Benadryl (in addition to other ingredients.)
It should be noted that Benadryl is the brand name of the medicine, and the actual ingredient is called diphenhydramine Hcl.
In addition to Benadryl, Advil PM and Tylenol PM, 7-Eleven also carries other sleep aids, such as NyQuil, melatonin, Dramamine, and their own branded sleep aid medicine.
How Much Does Benadryl At 711 Cost?
According to their website, 711 sells a pack of 24 25mg Benadryl tablets for $9.29. This comes out to roughly 39 cents per tablet.
However, the cheapest medicine that they sell containing diphenhydramine Hcl is their own private label brand, 7-Select.
Their 6oz liquid sleep aid comes in at only $4.99, making it the ideal choice for someone on a budget.
Of course, you can also purchase generic diphenhydramine online on a website like Amazon, bringing the cost per tablet down to as little as 1 cent per capsule.
What Aisle Can Benadryl Be Found In At 711?
Benadryl can be found in the same aisle as all of the other over the counter medications.
You should start by looking in the aisle with other sleep aids, as well as medicines like Tylenol and Ibuprofen. You’ll be able to recognize it by looking for a bright pink and blue box, with the Benadryl logo running across the top.
If you’re unable to locate it, consider asking a store employee for help.
Do All 7-Eleven Stores Carry Benadryl?
We drove around to several different 7-Eleven stores, and each one that we visited carried Benadryl within the store.
Therefore, it does appear that most – if not all 711 stores stock and sell Benadryl.
However, because they only carry one version of the Benadryl brand of diphenhydramine, it’s possible that it may sell out before you can get there.
Therefore, we recommend purchasing it as early as possible in the day to avoid it selling out.
Is 7-Eleven The Best Place To Buy Benadryl?
Unfortunately, Benadryl at 7-Eleven can be quite expensive compared to other places.
If you take Benadryl regularly, you can save a lot of money by purchasing diphenhydramine capsules in bulk, rather than buying the Benadryl brand of diphenhydramine.
This contains the exact same ingredient, but at a much lower cost.
Bulk capsules can be purchased on Amazon for as little as 1 cent per capsule. This is much cheaper than the 39 cents per tablet that 7-Eleven sells.
How Do Benadryl And Dramamine Differ?
Both Benadryl and Dramamine are sold at 7-Eleven, and both can act as a sleep aid. But how do they differ?
Diphenhydramine is an antihistamine while Dramamine is a motion sickness medication. They are both available over the counter at pharmacies. For a sleep aid, dramamine may be more effective since it also has a sedative effect.
Of course, you should always consult with your doctor before trying any new medications, and always follow the instructions as directed by your doctor.
Thankfully, 7-Eleven sells Benadryl at almost all of their stores. So if you’re relying it to fall asleep (or get through your allergies), you’re in luck.
However, 7-Eleven also sells other sleep aid medication should you need it.
