Which allergy medication works best for a 5 yr old?

1 doctor answer
Dr. Lawrence Wasser
Specializes in Pediatrics
Benadryl (diphenhydramine) or claritin: Benadryl (diphenhydramine) works well but can be sedating, or paradoxically might cause hyperactivity. Claritin is a nice alternative, working for 24 hours and usually not sedating.
