Avoid Cold medicines: Cough in young children is extremely frustrating for parents. Unfortunately cough medications used in adults don't work in children. Decongestants in combination with cough medications can actually be harmful. Using guafenesin may be helpful to help secretions stay loose.

Robitussin (guaifenesin): The Robitussin people make a great line of products. They very clearly spell out what is in each cough syrup.

Non-sedating anti-histamines are helpful if steroid spray alone won't do it! ...Read more
Everytime my son catches cold and cough, his cough heals very late.Please suggest an effective cough syrup or medicine?

It's always wise not to suppress coughs in children, except maybe at night for more restful sleep, but only if his doctor okays a medication with dextromethorphan. ...Read more

If not double-dosing: A person can usually briefly take different over-the-counter "cold" medications, as long as she reads the labels and does not accidentally double-dose on an ingredient. Watch for acetominophen (tylenol) and Ibuprofen (motrin, advil) in the multi-ingredient medications. A person with a sore throat should check with her doctor to see if she has a strep throat infection, or other "treatable" illness. ...Read more
