A pediatrician recommended Benadryl (diphenhydramine) for my toddler's cold. Is allegra similar? 24lbs
Antihistaminics. Well- Allegra and Benadryl (diphenhydramine) --- both are anti histaminics. Former is non sedating and latter is sedating. Usually Allegra is anti histaminics of choice for older kids. For toddlers loratidine or Zyrtec should be tried. 24 IBS -- seems like you have a kid anywhere from 12 mnths to 18 mnths age. Either way-- 1 ml of loratidine should. Do the trick. If symptoms do not improve within 3-5 days, consult.
