In brief: Depends on age

Disudrin is a decongestant.
This type medicine is not routinely used in children under 4. Side effect in older children are similar to what you might see with caffeine: jittery, can't sleep. No cold medicines make a cold go away any faster. It is ok not to give any medicines.
