Use in children: When there is an overdosage of antihistamines in infants and children, it may cause hallucinations and convulsions and it might also result in the death of the patient. In children, the mental alertness may be diminished by antihistamines and in young children they may cause excitation.
Geriatrics: In persons 60 years of age and older, drowsiness, dizziness, sedation and hypotension are more susceptible to be caused by antihistamines.
Pregnancy and lactation: In pregnancy and lactation, the safety for use has not been determined yet. Small quantities of antihistamines have been found in breast milk; the use of this medicine is therefore not recommended during lactation because very young children are more sensible to adverse effects of antihistamines such as excitement and irritability. Antihistamines also have the tendency to reduce the body secretions; it is therefore possible that the flow of breast milk would be reduced in some patients.
Occupational hazards: Patients should be cautioned not to operate vehicles or hazardous machinery until their response to the drug has been determined.
