My daughter has JIA and gets Remicade infusions w/ Benadryl. Her BP drops to 68/15 when she falls asleep. Is it dangerous to give her Benadryl at home?

In brief: Mgt

I would suggest having her monitored at an infusion center at a local children's center. Does she have any cardiac conditions? If so , this may contribute.
The dose of the pre medication may need to be adjusted accordingly, or a non sedating antihistamine such as Claritin can be considered. An inbox consult is also available to review additional information.
