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

A doctor prescribed my  2 year old a half tsp of rondec dm syrup every 4 to 6 hours as needed is this a safe dose?

Cough medicine: Cough/cold medications do not help relieve the symptoms they are meant to take care of. In short, they are useless for children below 6 years old. In addition, the child is exposed to bad side-effects from them like drowsiness, irritability, hyperactivity. Best medicine is lots of fluids, saline for the nose and possibly a cool mist humidifier in his room.. Try honey for the cough. ...Read more

My daughter 11 months old got fever cough, vomitting and she breathes rapidly. Can i give her ventolin syrup and at what dose?

Get medical care: Your daughter needs to see a doctor. If she has all those symptoms she may have pneumonia and will need to be treated. If she is breathing rapidly or with difficulty she will need medical care. In most instances, ventolin/ albuterol syrup has fallen out of favor as treatment for asthma and wheezing. ...Read more

While ventolin syrup is still available, it's use is uncommon as there are significantly more side effects and doesn't work better than the inhaled route. ...Read more

Yes: Amoxicillin should be compatible with otc cough meds. May take a few days to see improvement. Honey has been shown to be equally effective as dextromethorphin in suppressing cough. Make sure that otc is not just Guaifenesin which only thins mucous. Could do dextromethorphin and honey together. Could go to Codeine syrup if cough dry. Don't stop cough completely if mucous coming to clear lung. ...Read more

Viral Bronchiolitis?: I think your baby may have a viral bronchiolitis (cold with deep cough/wheeze). Treatment is a bit controversial. Some will use saline for the nose (spray/drops) and many will opt for asthma like care. Oral albuterol has grown out of favor for nebulizer treatments in the us. Albuterol is probably the main medication give via aerosol 3-4 times daily to help the cough and congestion. ...Read more
