Us too. NO dyes or allergenic filler materials. (We've had issues with others)
Our allergists (2 of 3) have also told us that the liquid is marginally faster-acting than the fast-melts for upper respiratory and GI symptoms. This makes sense from what little I understand of formulations and dissolution kinetics. I've never asked any of my colleagues about it, though.
I also (personally) agree with Mccobbre on that one. Ahhhhhhhhh... but for us, Bubble Gum, never Cherry. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/wink.gif[/img]

We keep a bottle of liquid at home and school. We carry around two chewable pills. I'd carry around liquid if they sold it in single dose containers. The whole bottle is just too big and heavy. I've asked my pharmasist if he had any containers that would work, and was told no. I also have had no luck finding them for sale anywhere. Grr!

The Container Store sells 1 oz., 1.5 oz., and 2 oz.(and other) Nalgene bottles that will not leak. Never have on me, and I've carried Benadryl in my purse in them for 7 years now.
They're inexpensive. I adore them.
We use other sizes for shampoo, Chi flat iron oil, etc., for travel--never the size we use for benadryl. But they all work great.

Ask your pediatrician for a sample size of Benadryl liquid. It comes in .85 oz bottle (approx 1" high).

Nalgene is the hard plastic material that 'sport' water bottle are made from. It is a very durable plastic and containers made from Nalgene come in various sizes. Nalgene is either the name of the hard plastic and/or the company name that makes the bottles/containers. I've seen them in the sporting goods/camping section of the local store, but found better selection/variety at camping/sport stores.

I just checked at the pharmacy and read the entire box. There is absolutely no dairy, but there is soy protein isolate.

Lactitol is a disaccharide polyol that is derived from the natural milk sugar: lactose.
unless pfizer is using a non-dairy form of lactitol (is there one?), then i do believe this is a dairy product. i could be wrong, though.

There may be a version with dairy, but there is definitely a non dairy form. Otherwise all those foods artificially sweetened with it would be listing "milk" in parentheses due to FALCPA. It is a sugar alcohol and is commonly used in low calorie foods. It can be made in a lab just like lactic acid or lactate. Hershey`s has quite a few low calorie foods with it, and they have been labeling for the top 8 before FALCPA required it. If it were milk derived, it would be on the label.
