my lo has been congested, sneezy, coughing etc for at least a month now. The doc thinks its allergies and suggested Claritin, 1/2t every other day for the next six weeks. He said that if it is allergies she can't get well and this would be why she has had repeated ear infections, bronchiolitis, and sinus infections.
I am not big on giving meds at all, unless they are really, truly needed and there are no other options. He said a holistic method wouldn't work here bc we don't know what she is allergic to and they don't have any holistic options that are proven to work.
What are everyone's thoughts on this? Anybody have a similar situation? I'm nervous about doing Claritin in my lo! My first thought is to always challenge the doc and his suggestions. I have a hard time trusting docs :/
