SCENARIO

Mrs S is going on holiday to the States with her husband and three children (aged 10, 6 and 18 months). She tells you that they’re not good travellers, though the youngest doesn’t seem to have a problem. She is keen to avoid the antihistamine tablets and syrup she bought last time as they made everyone very sleepy. Her friend has told her about another antihistamine which didn’t make her feel sleepy at all so she’d like to buy those. She’s also interested in non-pharma solutions and any possible natural ones to the problem.
