No no no: Do NOT give your newborn this syrup! It has a narcotic in it. It is a combination of hydrocodone and acetaminophen.

Add Miralax (polyethylene glycol): Constipation or stool holding is not uncommon at 22 months of age. It is very difficult to make a toddler eat the required amount of fiber/juice daily to overcome hard stools. To treat the stool holding/constipation I recommend 1/2 capful of MiraLAX (polyethylene glycol) daily-an otc stool softener-adjust the dose so your child has 1-3 soft easy thin stools daily. I would continue it for 4-6 months. ...Read more

I have had a cough for five weeks what is going on? I went to urgent care two weeks ago and he said I had bronchitis. I was given antibiotics for 10 days and a cough syrup. So I didn't get better and went back to my pcp a week ago and he did a chest X-ray
The most important thing to rule out is pneumonia. Although your chest x-ray did not show pneumonia there is a chance it was too early to be seen on the x ray, it developed afterward, or was missed. Pneumonia commonly occurs after a viral URI (cold) or bronchitis, so it is a real possibility especially since you have a persistent cough.
I hope a diagnosis is found soon and effective treatment follows.
Best of luck. ...Read more

Generally not used:
Generally decongestants are not recommended in children younger than age 4-6 because of the potential for side effects. If your child is having allergic congestion you should check with your doctor about meds, but a tsp of benadryl, (diphenhydramine) or 1 tsp of loratidine, the anti histamine in lorinase would be ok. But check with your doctor
