Read the directions on your label carefully and follow the instructions. Also, make sure that antihistimines do not interact with any other meications your child may be on. Sometimes we tend to accidently double up on medications for colds or allergies by combining a single medication with another med that has multiple symptom relief. Always check with your doctor if you have any questions that concern you about your child's health condition and any medication. Over the counter medications are very powerful and are capable of serious side affects.
