Can Virlix be taken safely by children?

My friend's son was treated with primary complex for 6 months. After 4 months they again went for a check up because the child experienced flu like symptoms every morning and night. The doctor prescribed Virlix to be taken twice a day (morning and night) 6 months. What are the side effects of Virlix? The child is 2 years and 4 months old and his speech level is not progressive.


Virlix is the brand name of an anti-allergic medicine called cetirizine. Its use below 1 year is not recommended. Generally it is used for short term. It has no effect on speech.
