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?

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
