Does anyone's child take medication for allergies? Have you noticed a change in their behavior, for better or worse? My 8 year old has allergy shiners, nasal/sinus congestion, the sniffles, and occasional watery eyes. He is irritable and tired a lot and has trouble sleeping. The doctor said to try an OTC drug like Claritin or Zyrtec. I've heard horror stories about children turning into moody monsters while on allergy medication. Considering his mood currently I would be very upset if medication made things worse. Has anyone had a behavior/personality change for the better after treating allergies because of better sleep patterns, less crankiness etc?
