Is it possible that i give my two-year-old children's Benadryl (diphenhydramine) for seasonal allergies?
Yes: Yes, you can give your 2 year old child Benadryl (diphenhydramine) for allergy symptoms. Its onset is fast within 15-60 minutes and it lasts for about 4-6 hours. Otc zyrtec's onset is also fast and it lasts for 24 hours. Keep in mind that those medications can control mild allergy symptoms. If your child still suffers from the disease after taking otc meds, you might want to bring him or her to see an allergist. ...Read more

My husband and i accidentally gave our 4 yr old son, who weighs 42lbs, a double dose of childrens benadryl (diphenhydramine) for his allergies (chewable tablets 12.5mg)?
??no numbers??: The only way for me to comment on the dose is if you list what you gave. Two 12.5 mg tabs in a 42 lb kid might make him groggy but shouldn't hurt in the long run.Four tabs would put him to sleep and he'd be out for a few hours. Luckily the med clears the body in 4-8 hours. ...Read more

Is it ok to give my 5 year old children's benadryl and childrens mucinex cough? She has bad allergies which makes her cough mostly at night.
MGT: I would not advise giving these medications to your child based on the information provided. I would suggest an over the counter anti histamine such as Claritin instead which is less sedating. The underlying cause of her nighttime cough should be further evaluated by her PCP. Does she have a history of asthma? Is there smoke exposure? ...Read more
I read on st louis children's hospital website you can give child 20-24 lbs (under 1 yr) 3/4 tsp Benadryl (diphenhydramine) for nasal allergies. Is that true?
My 8 year old son is having seasonal allergies. I am giving him childrens Claritin but was wondering if he can also have childrens Benadryl (diphenhydramine) ?
Other better options: Even certain "non-sedating" antihistamines like zyrtec have been found to impair short term memory and have negative effects on school performance. Rather than increase the likelihood of your 8 year old son having side effects, consider adding a topical nasal steroid spray like Flonase or a complimentary medication like singulair (montelukast). Alternatively, consider allergy testing to identify the triggers. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

How many ml's of childrens Benadryl (diphenhydramine) can I give my 4yr old 36lb son. Severe nasal congestion, watery eyes , and cough. Also has allergies ?
My LO is 8 mo. 20 lbs. I gave her infant Tylenol (acetaminophen). She has a thick runny nose and watery eyes (allergies) can I also give her children's benadryl?
Benedryl indication: Although the manufacturer does not indicate it's use in children under 2 years of age, it is not uncommon for it to be recommended 'off label' by pediatricians. Oral cetrizine is another antihistamine for allergies which does have a documented age indication for 6 months and up. Both of these medications can be safely administered with Tylenol (acetaminophen). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My ten year old has seasonal allergies for the first time. I gave her 24 hr Claritin (loratadine) at 7:30 am. It's 9pm. Can I give her children's diphenhydramine?
Okay: This is fine for short or longer term treatment. You might consider some of the newly made OTC nasal sprays with a low dose steroid (Nasocort,Rhinocort,etc.)I find many young women don't like the sprays, but if they will give them a week or two the allergies get better and they can sometimes drop the pills. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Perhaps, one: See prior answer for details about benadryl (diphenhydramine). An over the counter dose is 25 mg (the same dose they put in many 'sleep aides' like tylenol-pm, where the side effect of Benadryl (diphenhydramine) of drowsiness is the main ingredient). If taking it for typical allergies (runny nose, watery eyes, sneezing), could try one tablet. But there are better ones today with less side effects (zyrtec, allegra, claritin, etc). ...Read more
