Sedating kids on planes
Children can get dry mouth, stomachache, nausea, vomiting or rarely an allergic response to the med, heart palpitations, rash or other neurologic changes. A paradoxical (opposite) response, some kids get totally wired and a little crazy on it, too.
The crazy-hyper-nutty is not dangerous, but can be disastrous in a travel setting.
With Benadryl, those effects are often on the brain, gastrointestinal system and skin.
I hear you in not wanting to be the ditto on that story.The last place you want to be with an unexpected or undesirable medication side effect is on the airplane at 35,000 feet.
