May make her sleepy: I find little benefit of these medications at any dose. That said, it is a bit high. I would just let her sleep tonight and only give the 2.5 ml for any other doses you use later on. It should not do any harm. ...Read more

2 TSF is too much: We usually do not use cough medicine in children under 2.As general rule cough meds do not do any good in children under 2 years of age and can make than sick
Do not give any more cough medicine and if the baby keeps puking acts sicker, call your Pediatrician or take baby to ER. In all probability the baby will be ok as the med was vomited.

My daughter's pediatrician prescribed her Bromfed (brompheniramine) dm cough syrup as needed for cough and she is only 2 yrs old. Is this cough syrup bad for her?

Not recommended: The fda, as well as the aap do not recommend cough/cold products for young children, as they have not been shown to be effective, and may have side effects. I'd suggest vaporizer, fluids, suction nose with saline, and if over 1 yr, a tsp of honey. Don't use honey if less than 1yr, as there is a risk of botulism. ...Read more

I have allergies, so I took bromfed (brompheniramine) dm for 4 weeks every 6 hours; is this dangerous? I also take a cetirizine hydrochloride tablet, 10 mg, once a day.

Not efficient: Consider a virtual consult to discuss allergy symptoms, diagnosis and effective treatment strategies. Gold standard for diagnosis skin testing by an Allergist. However, there may be more efficient otc remedies/avoidance strategy to employ in meantime. Brompheniramine/cetirizine can be associated with increased anticholinergic side effects like sedation.

Is bromfed dm safe for my 4 year old?

Is bromfed dm safe for my 4 year old?

Define "safe": This & similar medications have been used for years after approval of the FDA. Many were prescription only until eventually moving to an over the counter status. In size appropriate doses they are considered safe. Studies over the last decade or so show little if any benefit to kids under 12. ER visits due to child directed overdoses led many to consider them more a threat than a benefit. ...Read more

My just turned 3 year old son was prescribed Bromfed dm 2.5ml every 4 hrs. I accidentally gave him 5ml. He weighs 34lb. I gave it 1.5hrs ago and he se?

It happens: At that weight the amount shouldn't hurt him. It may well show some side effects. Since it is a combination med it migght make him hyper or groggy depending on his sensitivity to the components. I find little value in these products and don't use them under the age of 6. Far too many kids decide to self medicate at some point trying to mimic what mom gives them to help them "feel better" ...Read more
