    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    My three year old has not slept in a month due to environmental allergies. The doc says start him on Allegra before bed. I know may of you are dealing with kid's seasonal allergies - any advice? Side effects I should look for?

    Awww, poor guy.

    Both girls are on Zyrtec. Emily takes the full adult pill, Elizabeth takes the children's liquid. I haven't noticed any side effects. It did, however, take a long time for it to totally kick in. It took about a month to really see an improvement.

    I hope the Allegra helps!
