Benadryl is safe to take while using propranolol. There are not any dangerous interactions.

However, propranolol does make some people drowsy. And Benadryl can make you drowsy, as well.

I would suggest you get an antihistamine that does not cause drowsiness. Ask your pharmacist. He or she can help you find one that is best for you.
