Is smz-tmp 200-40/5 sus hi-t good to take for a bad cough? My daughter is 4yrs old and i need to know if i can use this as cough medicine?
No. : No. That medication is the antibiotic Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) and it is not used for cough. You should never give your child any prescription medications without discussing it with your child's doctor first, unless the doctor just gave you that medicine for the child's current illness. There really aren't any safe cough medicines available for babies, toddlers or young children. The best things you can give are a spoonful of honey to "coat the throat' (as long as the child is over 1 year old!), hot tea with honey and lemon, and lots of fluids. If your child is having any difficulty breathing, develops a fever, or seems to be getting worse instead of better, call your child's doctor.

Depends: The medicine to treat cough is the medication that treats the underlying cause triggering the cough. Cough suppressants can decrease the cough response at the level of the brain's cough center, but should only be for temporary use due to side effects and risk for addiction in some. An allergist or pulmonologist can assist in finding the cause of cough such that a specific treatment is offered. ...Read more
