Q.

Jet Lag

Hi Doctor. My LO is 2 years old and i am travelling alone with her to the USA, i am very concerned about jet lag and the long flights. Is there something i can give her for the jet lag etc. I have tried Rescue but this seems to make her hyperactive.
She is currently on Zyrtec and Singulair for asthma

You should not give your little girl any medication for jet lag or for sedation. Most medicines have the opposite effect as you found when you gave her the Rescue remedy.
