Allergy medication

My daughter has seasonal allergies. She currently receives remicade infusions and methotrexate shots every Saturday night. I would like to know if it is safe to give claritin or benadryl.

My son is on claritan for seasonal allergies and remicade. Benadryl is often given as a pre-med for infusion but always best to check with the doctor.

My kiddo is allowed to take Zyrtec or Benadryl as needed for seasonal allergies. She is on a biologic and an immunomodulator.

I would definitely check with her allergist/pediatrician - whoever is managing her allergies.
