Stormy Daniels’s attorney said Thursday that his client had noticeably dilated pupils during her interview on “60 Minutes” because she had taken Benadryl.
“The only drug that my client took within the 24 hours before the interview was a single Benadryl,” her lawyer, Michael Avenatti, told Inside Edition.
Benadryl is an over-the-counter drug that contains diphenhydramine, which WebMD says “is an antihistamine used to relieve symptoms of allergy, hay fever, and the common cold. These symptoms include rash, itching, watery eyes, itchy eyes/nose/throat, cough, runny nose, and sneezing. It is also used to prevent and treat nausea, vomiting and dizziness caused by motion sickness. Diphenhydramine can also be used to help you relax and fall asleep.”
After her interview on Sunday, some on social media speculated that Daniels, 39, was high on . . . something.
But her lawyer also dismissed those allegations as “patently false and bogus.”
Medication like Benadryl can cause side effects such as pupillary dilation, according to Richmond Eye Associates.
So end of story? Who knows. This story just might never end.
