ALLERGEX
My 1 year old is currently taking 5ml of Lorahist every evening (per doctor's script) to help with her allergies. It does not seem to be sufficient now that spring is here and she really has the sniffles. Can I gave her Allergex in addiction to the antihistamine and if so how much and can it be taken daily or just as needed?

Lorahist is an antihistamine. So one antihistamine is enough. Use saline nose drops twice a day in addition to the Lorahist.
