No, he'll be fine but probably a little sleepy. The active ingredient is a sedating anti-histamine and is prescribed in children, at a lower dose, to help with allergies and motion sickness.

No, the active ingredient is the same as Benedryl which can be given to children. 25mg is a big dose for a kid so he may get a paradoxical reaction and get stimulated rather than sleepy or he may get sleepy. It shouldnt hurt him though and should wear off in 4-6 hours. He may have a dry mouth and be thirsty because antihistamines dry you out.
