Allergies: Has a doctor prescribed the claritin, singulair and nasonex (mometasone) for your 2 yr old child?? If so, discuss with your treating doctor. If not, stop immediately. These medications should only be used under careful medical attention for patients ages 2-6. Claritin is not cleared for under 6 unless under doctor's care. Absolutely no decongestant. Please do not risk your child's health, see your doctor.
