I gave to my 6 year old chlidren nyquil and childrens claritin (loratadine). Is it safe? What should I do?

I gave to my 6 year old chlidren nyquil and childrens claritin (loratadine). Is it safe? What should I do?

OK, but....: Your child will be ok receiving these two medicines at the same time. Claritin (loratadine) will most likely do very little to help with the runny nose, and many studies have shown that children's "cough medicines" do not work and sometimes can have unwanted side effects. ...Read more

My 3 year old daughter has a horrible cough and nausea. Can i give her cough syrup (children's nyquil) and gravol together?

My 3 year old daughter has a horrible cough and nausea. Can i give her cough syrup (children's nyquil) and gravol together?

No: The am academy of pediatrics doesn't recommend any cough products for young children as they haven't been shown effective and sometimes are harmful. Children's coughs may benefit from vaporizer, drinking fluids, and 1 tsp honey for those over 1 year. If cough persists, see dr: consider asthma, pneumonia, postnasal drainage cough, etc. I am not familiar with gravol, so no advice with it. ...Read more

Not recommended: None of these products are recommended for any child under age 6 yr. They were commonly used decades ago, but were more a product that give you something to do than helpful. They usually contain antihistamines which actually thicken secretions making it harder to get up and cough our mucous secretions.Proper nutrition, rest and time will solve this problem. ...Read more
