Have you ever known a doctor to encourage giving Benadryl to get your child to sleep? Normally they say not to so I was surprised to find out that my child's doctor encouraged it. He's a little guy and needs to have a CT scan done. They made the appointment for bright and early in the morning so we have to wake him and then give him meds to "knock him out" because she doesn't really want to give him anesthetics. What is your take on this?
Honestly, I'd be all for it. It's not like he's telling you to give it to him to make him nightly. Benadryl is pretty benign and if I could give that to my kid rather them have to have them anesthetized I would do it.
Like the pp said it make my kids bounce off the walls so I'd be worried about that if you'd never given it before. But I have fears about my kids being given general anethesia so over the two I'd much rather give them something O.T.C if it was an option.
