It's called the Benadryl Challenge Trending on Tic Tac, and it's already led to the death of a 15 year old girl in Oklahoma. A quick online search and you'll see videos of kids taking the challenge guessing how many Benadryl pills they can take before getting sick. Dr. Michelle Reed is a family practitioner in Garden City, New York, and says parents need to limit S ability. Do not believe medicine just out and about if something is a prescription medicine, make sure that it is in your room or in a place where your child does not know where it is. Read says.
