In brief: Follow guidelines
This has an antihistamine and decongestant in the formula.
Not knowing the weight of your child i would wait at least an hour. If the child is asleep let them sleep if not then give the ibuprofin according to the package directions for children and see/call your pediatrician asap. Rest and fluids with meds as needed; more is not better stay with in the guidelines for safety.
