Can you give a 3 year old cheratussin ac cough syrup?

Cheratussin AC

Cough
Cough syrups in general are not frequently recommended in Pediatrics. Cheratussin AC in particular contains Codeine, a narcotic, and can only be used by the patient it was prescribed for. Therefore, it is not recomended that this medication be given to a 3 year old.

I have been taking clarithromycin, predinisone , cheratussin ad syrup, and Claritin for strep throat, bronchitis , and a sinus infection. Now that I am feeling better I have this dry cough that worsen at night. Should I be worried ?

Not specificly

Macrolide
Of the things you list, the sinus infection can produce postnasal drainage & night cough & the bronchitis can produce a lingering cough that may last weeks. If you are starting to feel better you are on the right track.

2yr old & 6mth old gIven tamIflu for the flu & cheratussIn but the 6mth old seems to be n paIn can I gIve hIm tylnol paIn meds ontop of meds they got?

Influenza Flu

Head-nose
Body aches are frequent symptoms of the flu and this maybe the reason the baby is cranky. If you are giving acetaminophen (Tylenol) to control the fever, this should help. I would stop giving the Cheratussin to both children. You can try Vicks vaporub sparingly on the 2-year-old's chest. Tamiflu maybe causing the irritability as well as a possible ear infection. Get your 6 mo checked again.

What is ED CHLORPED JR SYP, CHERATUSSIN, PREDNISOLONE, and CEFPROZIL used to treat for a 3 yr old? My step daughter has to take it and i don't know y

The first medicine

Prednisolone
Sounds like a combination cough and cold syrup, the second one is a steroid ( use for reactive airway disease /asthma /bronchitis ) and the third one is an antibiotic for bacterial infection. You need to clarify this with her Pediatrician!
