Likely a non issue: The OTC medications you have mentioned do not contain any of the compounds you have listed as allergenic to your son. That being said, they may contain medications that he is allergic to that you don't know about yet, so careful observation is warranted.
Get a checkup!: Cough is a symptom of throat and possibly lung problems. If you have a persistent cough, it could be simply related to allergy drainage or acid reflux. An examination by a throat specialist can identify the cause of the cough and then treatments will avoid the need for cough drops. The key is to deal with the cause, not the treatment!See 1 more doctor answer

Cough drop over dose: Usually cough drops are over the counter and mild in strength with recommended dosages from their packaging label. However too much of anything can be bad so stick to recommended doses. If coughing is still problematic consider another remedy such as a tablespoon of honey (one study showed efficacy from Buckwheat honey equivalent to prescription narcotic suppressants). Don't give honey to infants.

Cough drops: Yes. There are many different ingredients especially in the herbal cough drops. Pay attention to the labels. May want to try plain peppermint or cinnamon candies instead.

Cough in a 4 mos old: Cough medications are not recommended for children under 2 years of age. Try saline nose drops it helps clear the nose, sooth the throat & calms the cough. If cough is frequent or associated with fever, wheezing or any difficulty breathing you should take him to his pediatrician. I hope he gets better soon.

Cough drops: Good afternoon! It depends on what ingredients are in the cough drops. If it contains pseudoephidrine you may cause your heart to race or make an arrhytmia (abnormal heart rhythm or rate) worse and you will get dry mouth. Or if they contain guafensin the active ingredient in Robitussin (guaifenesin) you can get nausea vomiting etc. Just eat candy not cough drops...
