can my 8 year old take Claritin and ibuprofen together? Not sure if her runny nose is due to allergies, but she has a fever.

Not allergy

Fever
A young child doesn't get a fever from an allergic reaction. Tylenol or a non steroidal antiinflammatory can help to reduce fever. Antihistamines work well for allergic conditions but not colds or viruses.

Can my 4-year-old take claritin and mucinex? I think she has allergies and the claritin is not helping her runny nose and she is miserable.

ALLERGIC RHINITIS

Allergies
Your 4 year old does not respond to claritin? Try giving benadryl 1 tsp at bedtime and claritin at daytime. Mucinex is a cough expectorant. She does not need it.

My one year old daughter won't take her claritin that was prescribed by get doctor..how can I get get to take it....maybe mix it with some juice?

Mix it

Claritin
You can try mixing the medication with juice, but aim for a quantity of juice you know she can drink easily. Alternately, you can look into the rapidly dissolving version of this medication. Ask your doctor if the dose of the rapidly dissolving Claritin is appropriate for your daughter.

Can I give my two year old children's tylenol and children's claritin at the same time?

Yes

Claritin
The products will not interfere with one another.You might want to make sure the kids stomach settles with one before you give the other as sometimes the mixture of tastes will cause them to spit it out.

Can I give my 3 year old 1/2 teaspoon of claritin at night follwed up with a 5mg claritin in the morning?

Max -5mg in 24 hrs

Claritin
Manufacturer's maximum dose is 5 mg/24 hrs for children ages 2- 5 years. Half (1/2) teaspoonful of Claritin syrup is 2.5mg. If you prefer syrup over chewable tablets and must give your child a dose at night and in morning , then give 1/2 teaspoonful in morning and night. Doses > 5 mg increases risks of side effects (restlessness, fatigue, headaches). See doctor if baby not improving. Take care

Can I give my 3 year old 1/2 tsp of zyrtec at night and then follow up with a 5mg chewable Claritin tablet in the am?

Yes

Nocturnal
Yes, one can do this. Instead consider 2.5 ml of Zyrtec twice daily as the maximum daily dose of Zyrtec at this age is 5 ml. If you have to use this high of a dose to control allergies consider seeing your doctor for other prescription options like nasal steroids. As always, treatment of allergies includes avoidance of the allergen in addition to medications.
