Best hay fever medication for 7yo

Can anyone recommend a hay fever medication that's suitable for a 7yo? DS1 has Piriton syrup at the moment but it's not that effective and he has to have it three times a day which interrupts his playtime at school.

Another one here for Cetirizine. DD11 has been taking for 3 years and works well with no side effects. We use Supermarket brand as Zyrtec (trade name) is more expensive.

My ds has terrible hayfever and has done since he was 2 (he is now 7). He has always taken cetirizine too. But the last 2 years he has been prescribed Grazax from St Thomas' hospital. I can honestly say it has transformed his life. It is a grass pollen tablet that he has placed under his tongue daily for 3 years. It basically desensitizes the body. He has gone from having to spend the biggest part of the summer inside to being able to do sports on the school field.!
