I took one benadryl pill last night at around 8:30pm (the drowsy type) and did NOT sleep. I hope my adrenaline keeps me up today. Next time, I'm going to take 2 pills and risk hangover, or just try melatonin.

I should have taken your advice. I read in another thread not to take two. At least now I know for next time.

It's totally excusable. You really shouldn't take medical advice from online especially dosage advice lol. I just happen to know a lot about it because my mom is a pediatrician, so I learned from her and offered my $.02.
