Discussions that mention claritin

Children's Health board


My ex sister in-law is being maniacal about giving her kids medication, and honestly I think they are being way overmedicated. I never see them wheezing, they run around outside, run track, bike, skate, etc and never complain. When my brother has them, he doesn't give them meds and they are fine (actually better, not drowsy, more energetic, play more outside). Now she is threatening to sue him if he doesn't give them the meds. He is seeking a second opinion from another Dr, but she is against that for some odd reason.

For example this is what they are taking: Does this seem like alot???
