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.

That's an overdose: 32-48 mg is definitely an overdose of chlorpheniramine. The maximum over-the-counter recommended dose is 4 mg every 4-6 hours (24 mg max/day). There are extended-release forms that have higher doses, but they are also meant to last 12 hours or longer. 32-48 mg will likely cause dry mouth, eyes, etc., as well as excessive drowsiness. I don't recommend at all that high a dose. ...Read more
