So I think this year we're going to try to relieve these seasonal allergies with Claritin. I like that it provides 24 hour non-drowsy allergy relief with just one pill a day. The less often I have to give my boys medications, the better I feel. And Children's Claritin is the #1 pediatrician recommended non-drowsy allergy brand.
I was fortunate enough to be chosen as part of the Claritin's Mom Crew, and they sent me some products for the boys.
I let Reid try Claritin first, as he has had a itchy, runny nose for several days and has been complaining about it. He had one of the grape chewable pills. He loved the grape flavor. When I checked in with him later during the day, he seemed to be doing much better - his nose had dried up. I was pleased that there were no side effects for him - he wasn't drowsy, nor was he bouncing off the walls.
I think that this will be a good option for the boys until the pollen count drops off in mid summer. I hope that taking Claritin daily during peak pollen counts can also help keep Cort from having the sort of scary bad reaction that he had last spring. It's tough watching him struggle with so many allergy issues at such a young age.
So here's hoping that the only doctor visits going on in our house this spring are of this variety:
As part of the Claritin Mom Crew, I was sent several samples of both adult and children's Claritin to share with friends. Of course my blogging buddies are my friends too, so if you're interested in receiving a sample, let me know in a comment. I'll randomly pick 3 of you to send samples.
