Thank you for your query.

1. Avil (pheniramine maleate) is the anti-allergic of choice for very young children.

2. If you do not have the syrup, you will have to give 1/2 (half or 12.5 mg) of a tablet of 25 mg.

3. Do not repeat the dose before consulting a Pediatrician.

4. You must be aware that there are numerous side effects and watch out for the sedative effects .

I hope that I have answered your queries. If you have any further questions, I will be available to answer them.
