my child is 4.5 months 8 KG and he has runny nose and his chest always makes sounds the doctor said he has chest alergy and prescribed zyrtec syrup for him and the dosage is 1 cm per day for 3 weeks so i want to know if it safe to use this drug
I have not done research on this, but I can tell you that my grandson has taken Zyrtec syrup, prescribed by his ear, nose and throat doctor, since he was 6 months old. This doctor has him taking Benadryl in the morning and Zyrtec in the evening. I wondered about this also but, as his grandmother, my concerns were noted but I was not invited along to the doctor appointment. My grandson has been on this combination for three years now, and you would never know now that he has allergies. Of course you should always ask your doctor before stopping, starting or changing any medication. Have a great day - ElizaJane
