Although I can't see any indication for this drug in your case, it's probably safe to use it.

I've used the word "probably" because all drugs may have side effects but for this kind of drugs the side effects are less likely to be very serious (compared to others that is) and many patients use antihistamines for a long time to treat allergies without significant side effects.

Let me inform you though that this type of drug is indicated when a patient has an allergy and sometimes it's also used during the course of upper respiratory tract infections to reduce respiratory airways secretions.

Another potential use is against nausea when related to the labyrinth.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
