Medication for 5 year old for sensory processing disorder with behavioral problems

My 5 year old son dx with sensory processing disorder has some behavioral issues in school and at home (excessive talking, fidgeting, temper tantrums).   We would like to know if there is any medication that can be prescribe to 5 year old's with sensory processing disorder.  He does not have ADHD or any other disorder. He is currently being seen by an OT to address these issues and other therapies are being done.  But we have noticed that when he is given his allergy medication his behavioral issues go away and he is focused.  His allergy medication is only given occasional for his allergies and is not the answer.  We are now wondering if there is a medication out there that may be able to help him.

No. Pharmacological treatment is not indicated for sensory processing disorders. OT is the approapriate intervention. The benefit from the allergy med is likely due to the mildly sedating impact of many such medications.
