    It's not a generic of any specific brand, really. Yes, Benadryl is the original, but the chemical names are what it comes down to. Go to a store and look for (just an example) Benadryl. You'll find it in generics marked antihistamines, sleep aids, motion sickness, etc...but they are all the same active drug. Diphenhydramine is old as dirt, and has many uses, so you'll see it marketed to different symptoms. The diphenhydramine in Tylenol pm is the exact same as the diphenhydramine in Benadryl, some forms of unisom, 'allergy meds' In a pink box lol..
    When a drug has a patent, one company gets to be the one and only company to make a drug under their brand name. After that runs out(typically 5-10yrs), all sorts of drug manufacturers are working on their generic so it's ready to go when the patent is up. That's why if you get a new drug from a pharmacy, it's crazy expensive. The company knows they are the only one allowed to make and market that formulation. When the generic comes out, the prices slowly come down, because it's not all about one company holding the gold anymore. See what I mean? It's late..sorry if I rambled lol

    Heh. OT a little, but I think it was this thread that talked about idiots calling 911 for the most bizarre reasons. Here's a new one:

    I just wanted to mention that Jennifer Evert( I hope that is the right name) also went to a convenience store and bought a snack. Then she drove into the woods and shot herself. People do things you would not expect.

    Of course it's my own opinion, the opinion rental shop was fresh out of borrowed opinions.

You need something to keep your cookies in. If I was planning on disappearing on a ferry, I'd stop and get some Benadryl too. Not necessarily to sleep, but to prevent sea sickness. See where I'm getting with this?
    As everyone has repeated already it wasn't Benadryl it was rite aids version of Unisom.

    That's kind of what I meant. Diphenhydramine is a generic Benadryl found in Tylenol PM (and store brand versions, such as the Rite Aid brand). Whereas the Doxylamine is the generic medication found in forms Unisom. At least that's my understanding. I only know I have to be careful to avoid Benadryl (and Diphenhydramine) because it tends to make me nauseous. Yeah, I'm just a weirdo that way.

    ETA: My point being that Rite Aid sell it's own version of both Tylenol PM and Unisom, so she could have purchased either Diphenhydramine or Doxylamine. I don't think it's been specified which one she purchased, and I don't think it really makes a huge difference either way. IMO.

    In the summer, when the weather is calm, seasickness is rarely an issue on the San Juan routes. The ferries are huge and very very stable. I get seasick fairly easily and the only time I have had the slightest issue was going through some storms in the winter.

    I've been on the Mukilteo-South Whidbey route in the middle of big wind storms and did feel a little queasy then.

    I just find it highly unlikely that she would have bought the sleep aid in preparation for a ferry ride to the San Juans.

    Oh, poor guy! I can relate! I live ON an island and I get so seasick! We took a dinner cruise to the Na Pali Coast of Kauai and I was doing good until we were ready to eat! I was the only one out of 80 people throwing up over the side! Everyone said the lasagna was great! Even pills don't help me.

    And just had to add...if there are any I Love Lucy fans on here, like me, it brings to mind the episode of the Staten Island Ferry. lol!

    I don't see any argument.

    The San Juan ferries do not cross the Strait of Juan de Fuca.

    Have you actually ridden the Washington State Ferries to any of the San Juan Islands in the summer? I've never heard anyone describe them as brutal. They are extremely calm most of the time. I ride them 1-2 times a month, sometimes more...

    Now waiting to catch the ferry, I have heard that described as brutal many times

    Turner said her daughter was born in the Panama Canal Zone and then raised in the Tacoma area. She attended a community college in Bellingham, she said. Jennifer Huston is a stay-at-home mom, she said.

    "She loved decorating, yard work and getting together with friends for coffee," Turner said. "She likes design and culture. She was a woman who wanted to make life better."
    Her mom mixes her tenses here.. she loved... she likes... she was...

    Jmo it would never occur to me that Unisom or Tylenol PM would be helpful for sea-sickness. There are products for that.
    Just my opinion, of course.
