My sons have had seasonal allergies since they were very little. I have tried many allergy medicines but Benadryl always seems to work the best for them. They have tried many different forms of Benadryl but their favorite is the Allergy Fastmelt.
They like these because you don't have to swallow or chew them. You just place them in your mouth and they dissolve very quickly. They are cherry flavored, which the boys really like.They also seem to work faster than normal pills.
The active ingredient in these Benadrel Allergy Fastmelts is Diphenhydramine citrate. They help to relieve the following symptoms; runny nose, sneezing, itchy, watery eyes and itching of the throat and nose. The dosage is 1-4 tablets every 4 to 6 hours, depending on the childs age. My sons are almost 14 and can take adult medicines but I find that many are still too strong for them. The Fastmelts work very well for them and don't cause any major side effects.
If you have a child with allergies and need a fast reliable medicine, I highly recommend Benadryl Allergy Fastmelts.
