Using Allergy Medicine for Children

If you have children with allergies, you are going to want to find out more information on using allergy medicine for children. This is important because you are not able to use the same allergy medicines on children that you would on adults. Doing so would be incredibly dangerous, possibly even life threatening.

Whether you find a new allergy medicine or other allergy medicine for children, you should know that there are several great options that are available.


Claritin is one of the most popular options when it comes to allergy medicine for children, and one of the first that you will certainly want to try. This medication is also available as a syrup and chewable tablet, but they are officially only approved for children over the age of two, so if your child is younger than this they will not be able to take this medicine.


This is another good choice for any parent who is looking for an allergy medicine for children. This is a great alternative for younger children, and was even used to prevent asthma in the past. It can be given to children as long as they are over the age of six months, and can be taken for several weeks if need be.


Yet another allergy medicine for children that can be used is Allegra. This is actually the latest allergy medicine to approved for children, and is also one of the latest to be made available in liquid form. It is now available in an oral suspension that can be given to children between the ages of two and eleven years old.

These medicines will all work on children, but just to be sure you are going to want to talk to the childs doctor before going ahead with any of these. This way they will be able to assess the childs allergy condition and ensure that no serious health conditions are at play here. They will also be able to work with you in order to determine which particular medicine is going to be best suited to your child.

Remember to always keep your doctor up to date with your childs allergies, and keep them posted on any improvement they are making. This way their doctor will be able to keep track of which medications have worked best on your child and which should be avoided. This is important if you want to be able to deal effectively with your childs allergies for the long run.
