My son is on clarithromycin and at night time can't stop coughing due to mucus. Can I give him Benadryl (diphenhydramine)??
What it he on the : antibiotic for? Benadryl (diphenhydramine) is an antihistamine that can thicken secretions. If he has pneumonia, Reactive Airway Disease or mild asthma, or is younger than 6 years, OTC cold & cough medicines are not recommended. Antihistamines are for allergies. I suggest you him back to his pediatrician to determine if it's safe to suppress his cough at night. Push clear liquids so his cough is loose & " juicy". ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

It may make him sleepy, but is easily overdosed, which is why cold medications are not recommended for infants anymore without a doctor's prescription.
