daughter young adult had hives hayfever and swelling in eyes, had 1 x 10mg Clarityne tablet, and as it did not seem to be working, I gave her approx 10mg Demazin syrup, about an hour later, she's asleep.
Yes, thats fine. The chlorpheniramine component in the Demazin can make you drowsy. You need not worry about giving her too much. As a "one off incident" it won't be harmful.
When she wakes up if she still has the symptoms take her to a pharmacist and they will be able to recommend a suitable anti-histamine tablet and dosage.
