The use of antihistamines in young children is controversial.  It is strongly recommended that they not be given to children <2 years old and the appropriateness of these medicines in children 3 to 11 years old continues to be assessed.  Assuming that you are referring to pediatric pills and the labeling indicates the dose to be given, then the dose would not be deemed “too strong”.  Under no circumstance should you administer a pill of a strength intended for adults or even adolescents.  If you have any doubts, call back and request that the nurse pose the question to your daughter’s doctor.
