    Children's Claritin?

    Hello forum members,

    I've been using Children's Claritin (chewables) for a 5-year old to deal with her allergies, but our stock is quickly running out. Does anyone know where I can find it in Hong Kong?

    Or, are there local alternatives that are ok for children to take? I plan to take my girl to the family doctor, but we are still in transition and can't make an appointment yet.

    I'd appreciate any advice and info!

    Thanks,
    FriedOkra

    Am not sure about Clartin, but our Dr did prescribe singulair once. More info here:

    Thank you!

    Hi Rani,

    Thank you for the info. I'll contact our family doctor back home to see if it's suitable. Do pharmacies in Hong Kong carry this as over-the-counter?

    I don't think its an OTC medicine, but most HK pharmacies will sell it to you without a prescription. Would recommend asking yr Dr first.
