  • TikTok'Benadryl Challenge Took The Life Of 15 Year Old Girl

Including putting their lives in danger.

When a teen girl died near Oklahoma City in August, her family blamed the 15-year-old's death on a Benadryl overdose according to a letter from her mother obtained by local media. The girl "was not one to experiment with drugs", the report said, and those who cared about her described her as "an otherwise happy and faith-driven teen".

What is the Benadryl challenge?

The Benadryl challenge on TikTok is the latest social media fad where teenagers have been encouraged to take a dozen or more doses of Benadryl so as to experience a high that could lead to hallucinations.

In May, three teenagers living in Fort Worth, Texas were rushed to the hospital after taking large amounts of Benadryl for the challenge.

Scott Schaeffer, director of the Oklahoma Center for Poison and Drug Info, cautioned teenagers about the hazards of the stunt in the wake of Chloe's passing, stating it could "trigger something possibly fatal", news station KFOR reported.

He noted that taking too much Benadryl can disrupt how a person's heart pumps blood, which can cause seizures and other long-term problems as well as death.

The challenge is extremely risky.

Parents need to be on the alert. Shaeffer said a lot of time is spent by the educators he works with, attempting to help parents convince young people of the dangers of these types of challenges. If your kids are on social media, and on TikTok in particular, ask if they've heard about the Benadryl challenge and share the above news stories with them so they understand that taking more than the recommended dose, as needed, is unsafe. "It may be a hard discussion, but you can get in and out", said KFOR Digital Content Editor Kari King. The generic name for Benadryl is diphenhydramine.

In an email to Fox News, a spokesperson for Johnson and Johnson, the manufacturer of Benadryl, said it should only be used as directed on the label, adding that "the Benadryl TikTok trend was extremely concerning, risky and should be stopped immediately".
