My DS has bad allergies. We have tree's in our yard that are in bloom right now, and he is just miserable. I give him childrens claritin, and it works wonders for the little guy! It says 24 hour relief, but it seems by bedtime his nose is runny/congested again. I can tell he feels like crap. Then he is waking up all night and it's bad for all of us, cause then we're all awake. If I give it to him at bedtime he sleeps great without nose problems, but his problems come back at noon-ish the next day. So the dosage is a teaspoon... I was wondering if it's safe to try and fix the problem by giving him 1/2 tsp in the morning and the other 1/2 at bedtime? I figured I ask other Mommies before trying this cause I don't want it to make him sick or something.Answer Question

You could switch to children's Allegra... it's a 12 hour dose.
Other then that you NEED to talk to a Doctor or Pharmacist!!
Never take advice on medication for your child from strangers over the Internet!!
