  • If your child has asthma and allergies it would be best to consult your childs doctor and find out if the flu shot is ok, or if it would make things worse. As to the not sleeping and taking singular- you should alert the doctor. I don't know if they can change the dosage, or switch him to something else... or give ideas on what can be used to aid sleep...
    Good luck

  • What is he allergic to? Do you have any animals in the home? I would get rid of them if you do. I would talk with his pediatrician about weather or not to give him the shot. My doctor always wants me to give my daughter the flu vac because she has a history of pnemonia.
