Benadryl for Children

Take Benadryl to relieve stuffiness in order to get a good night’s sleep, which enables you to be at your best during the day’s activities. Potential users with pre existing glaucoma, chronic breathing and prostate conditions should use caution, consulting a doctor before taking. Marked drowsiness may occur… excitability may occur, especially in children, are two of many side effects.

The afore-mentioned precautions, seemingly intended for the mature [male] consumer, caught my attention. Recently after speaking with the mother of an active, diagnosed over-active … you know the labels, 5 year-old brilliant little boy, taking Benadryl for the purpose stated.  Granted it is the children’s formula, which is simply a watered-down version of the original and probably artificially flavored. Should the little ones be mindful of glaucoma and prostate problems, while driving or operating machinery? Probably not, but be aware of exactly what that “good night’s sleep” is actually costing.   

The concerns are for all my children, ingesting over the counter chemicals through their rapidly developing brain and little bodies. The short term effects or side effects are listed on the packaging. However what long-term effects will this combination of chemical ingredients have on their adult minds and bodies?

Less than ½ ounce of the “Tonic” eliminated the congestion and excitability while fortifying his immune system, all with no side effects.

Children’s Benadryl was recalled on November 15, 2010.
