  Last weekend a friend mentioned hearing a radio report claiming
that prolonged use of the OTC drug Benadryl (sp?) was correlated
with the likihood of getting Alzheimer's disease...Alledgedly 
the report was from a hospital based in Philadelphia but my friend
thought it was not UPenn.  Did anyone hear/read anything about this?
I really like a reference if this is a true study.  Thanks much!
