Possible Side Effects
Side effects that usually are not serious include: The most common side effect, which is often desirable, is sleepiness. Most animals will become tolerant to this effect with time and will not get as sleepy when given the medication. Cats, in particular, may become unusually excited while taking this drug. Dry mouth and trouble urinating (eg, straining) are possible but not common. Infrequently, diphenhydramine may cause gastrointestinal distress such as vomiting, decreased appetite, or diarrhea. You don’t have to be overly concerned if you see any of these signs unless they are severe, worsen, or continue to be a problem. Contact your veterinarian if this happens.
