Active ingredient: Cetirizine
BENADRYL® Allergy Children's 1mg/ml Oral Solution contains cetirizine (antihistamine).
Although cetirizine is a non-sedating antihistamine, occasionally some people may experience drowsiness. You should make sure you know how this medicine affects you before you perform potentially hazardous activites. If you do find this medicine makes you sleepy you should avoid drinking alcohol or taking other medicines that cause drowsiness with it, as this could make any sleepiness or reduced alertness worse.
If you are due to have any skin prick or patch tests to diagnose allergies you should stop taking your antihistamines at least 48 hours before the tests. This is because antihistamines can prevent or lessen the skin reactions that indicate an allergy, and so can make the test results unreliable.
