Behavior/sleep: One of the side effects includes behavioral changes. Please review the product insert. There are a variety of options in your treatment. Please have an allergy test panel to determine what you are allergic to and then take measures to minimize exposure. Avoid dust, pollen, mold and other allergens. An antihistamine and nasal saline may be useful in your management. Consider a HT inbox consult.
