TikTok’s ‘Benadryl Challenge’ Has Become So Dangerous, Johnson & Johnson Is Stepping In

And here I was thinking the TikTok Holocaust cosplay trend was a danger to society. How silly.

Teens across the country are partaking in a challenge that encourages each other to take as much allergy medicine as needed to hallucinate, with some TikTokers taking a dozen or more pills before trippin out.

Johnson & Johnson is urging parents to be aware of a Benadryl TikTok challenge that is spawning over the web after a 15-year-old girl died from it and put three Fort Worth, Texas teens in the hospital after a diphenhydramine overdose.

Johnson & Johnson called the trend “extremely concerning” and “dangerous”, and claimed it’s working with TikTok and other social platforms to remove content that showcases such behavior. Scott Schaeffer, director of the Oklahoma Center for Poison and Drug Information, warned that ingesting large doses of Benadryl can result in seizures and serious heart problems.

“The dose that can cause a hallucination is very close to the dose that can cause something potentially life-threatening,” Schaeffer said.

The Benadryl Challenge is just the latest buffoonish trend involving teens that need to go outside and play some old fashioned manhunt.
