Q.

Allecet

Hi Professor,

Thanks for your reply about Allergies. I will try the Allecet at night, but would like to know for how long I can give my two sons this? And is it safe for my 5 year old son with Epilepsy? I think the pamphlet inside mentions it has not been tested or something.

Thanks again.

Allecet is a very safe antihistamine and is safe to use for several months if needed. Allecet should be safe for use with your son who has epilepsy as it does not interact with other medicines. Start off with half the recommended dose for 3 nights before giving him the full dose.
