I am a worried mother. My 12 year old developed motor tic disorder out of no where so they put him on a blood pressure med called clonodine or something like that and the 2nd day he took it one whole side of his face was swallen by the next morning. I immediately stopped the med and have not allowed him to take anything else but ever since at least 3 times a week the same upper right corner of his top lip swells. It is never painful but tonite was different. He messed with a small pimple on his lip and after washing his face within 5 min his lip was fully swallen and his whole body was covered in hives. I rushed Benadryl into his system as I have every time his lip swells but it only put him to sleep his lip never responds. The swelling is always gone by the time we get into the dr. Any advice will really help. They already did an allergy test and they said it was clear. Sweets4bb@yahoo.com is my email address I'm so stressed please feel free to send any info you think might help.View Thread
