My baby boy is 2 month old. Is gudcef drops safe for him. Dr told he is having sinus. Dose prescribed gudcef 15 drops 2times butamol syrup 2 ml 3times?
Wouldn't use either: A 2 mo is congested and coughs because they have irritants, odors, dust, etc. Triggering nasal congestion. A good nasal wash out and suction with saline drops should be all the kid needs. Eliminate the nasal irritants and the kid may improve. ...Read more
I gave my daughter 5 mL of bromfed syrup on accident instead of the 2.5 mL dosage. She weighs 33lbs.... turns 3 in March. Will she be okay?
Most likely: She may be a little sleepy from the dose but a single dose at that level is unlikely to hurt her. The AAP and other groups have found that use of these products under the age of 6 has little or no value. The frequency of eR visits by kids self treating has led many to stop recommending them. ...Read more

My baby is 12 weeks old, as per pediatrician I m supposed to giv her 5 ml of calcium syrup everyday but by mistake I was giving 10ml. I am worried.
Probably, your baby is fine. In general, it is hard to overdose on oral calcium. Generally, you just won't absorb enough from your intestines to have real problems. If your baby is otherwise healthy, you should not have to worry.
If your baby has other problems, you should talk to your pediatrician and make sure that there are no concerns. ...Read more

My baby is 3 yrs old and a dr prescribed cetirizine 1mg/ml syrup (2.5ml once after dinner) and my husband gave him 1 1/2 tsp instead by mistake...?
Will be OK...: Taking 3x the usual dose should be ok. Your child could get a little sleepy (or perhaps even a little irritable) but it is not harmful. If your child is taking many other meds or has serious underlying health concerns, I would probably call your poison control center (open 24/7). They are always helpful and reassuring to speak with. ...Read more

Check with doc: Cetirizine is good as an allergy medicine for control over a period of time. It's not meant as an acute treatment. If your child suddenly has cough, you should have him examined to make sure the issue is viral vs. Asthma or other etiology. A 2 year old can take cetirizine, but it's off-label, and should be guided by a physician. ...Read more
