Clonidine and Antihistamines

Posted at 2:02 pm on 01/21/2015 by Powlin V. Manuel
Non-sedating antihistamine such as Claritin or Allegra would be a better choice if the child is on clonidine. Antihistamines with side-effects of sedation may have additive sedative effect. Decongestants in the cough mixtures may interfere with the effects of clonidine. Cough syrup such as Robutussin may provide relief from cough and will not have any interaction with clonidine.
