Doctor encouraged Benadryl to get him to sleep

Posted by   + Show Post

Have you ever known a doctor to encourage giving Benadryl to get your child to sleep? Normally they say not to so I was surprised to find out that my child's doctor encouraged it. He's a little guy and needs to have a CT scan done. They made the appointment for bright and early in the morning so we have to wake him and then give him meds to "knock him out" because she doesn't really want to give him anesthetics. What is your take on this?

Honestly I'm not sure. I can see the pros and cons of it. But i don't know which would outweigh the other. Good luck mama!
