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!
