I know this is a little different from other comments on this site, but this pill has worked wonders for my 12yr old Labrador Retriever! lol, but I'm not kidding. He has allergies so bad that every time the wind changes he itches so bad that he will eat spots of hair off his body.

I just have to warn others that this medication will make you extremely drowsy/sleepy! I took one 25mg pill and barely could keep my eyes open. I toook it for an allergic reaction I had and it was suppossed to soothe the itching. Well it did, but that was because it made me go to sleep! Do NOT drive when you take this medication!
