Please tell any over-the-counter syrup available for kids having
pseudoephedrine hydrochloride, chlorphenamine maleate, acetaminophen?
I do not think so: If you are asking for a single medication that is available otc with all 3 ingredients, I am not aware of any. You can find some that have the Pseudoephedrine and the chlorpheniramine but not the acetaminophen. I believe advil allergy sinus is close having Ibuprofen instead of the Acetaminophen in pill form.
