I gave my 2 yr old benadryl but was given claritin from her pediatrician, is it safe to give both in the same day?
Yes: I usually pick one or the other, but claritin as a good safety profile and few side effects. It does not aggravate the sedation common to benedryl so overlapping them is fine. Benedryl is a bit more effective, but wears off in about 4 hours.
