Renee, mother to Nicholas, born 4/18/08 with silent reflux, moderate laryngomalacia, Sandifer's Syndrome& suspected MSPI. On Neocate, Simply Thick and Prevacid. Also mother to Nathan, born 12/06/06, who had mild reflux the first few months.
hydroxyz hcl
Hi all We met with the allergist today and due to the severe extent of Nicholas's eczema, he prescribed hydroxyz hcl 10mg/syp 1/2 tsp 3 x per day. Has anyone used this antihistimine with their lo and if so, does this dose sound high? We gave him one dose tonight, but three times a day sounds like a lot. I am going to call MD tomorrow to verify this is correct but am still nervous to give him that much.

Maggie is now 3 years old and reflux free (knock on wood). I still check in some to see how everybody is doing :) Hugs to all!
Maggie was prescribed this med exactly a year ago. I just got the bottle and it was prescribed 11/14/07!!!

That means she was 11mths old and about 20lbs.

Her dosing was as follows: 1/2-3/4tsp 4x a day for 2 days; then 3x for 2 days, the 2x for 2 days.

this is the hydroxyz hcl 10mg/5ml syrup. I believe it was prescribed to her when she had hives.

Thanks. I called the pharmacist today and double checked with him that the dosage was appropriate and that it wouldn't interact with his other meds. I get nervous with all meds but especially antihistamines. We've only given it to him twice so far, but he seems to be tolerating it ok (knock on wood). :)

Yeah, it didn't bother Mags. It worked pretty quick if I remember right.
Check with your
doctor first!
