My doctor prescribed Allergex for my 9 month old daughter. The bottle says not to give to children under the age of 2. Should I still give it to her?

In brief: Depends

If the kid broke out in hives I might use an antihistamine like this.
I don't find it helpful for colds or drainage & find it can thicken secretions & make them worse. This is an okay med when used for the right reasons. Since you didn't post why it was suggested it is hard to comment.
