  • depends on what your symptoms are
    my son has good luck with Zyrtec ( the generic ) and he is 3
    I use singular RX but when I used over the counter there was this cheap major brand that just had ALLERGY over it and it was 100 tablets for like $3 that worked better than any claritin or expensive one. good luck.

  • I use Claritin because it works and doesn't make me drowsy! You can find the generic equivalent for $1.00 at the dollar stores and Big Lots!

  • I use alavert and I really like it. It dissolves in your mouth and tastes kind of gross, but it always helps.

  • We use Benadryl or Zyrtec or Allegra. Any of them are good, but Benadryl will make you sleepy.
