Hello Dr,
My 22 month old has a cold which has gone to her chest. I have been giving her Sterimar and you suggested mucospect which i started giving yesterday. She is also on the Seretide pump and i give her viral guard every day. You said it is safe to give the mucospect straight after the Seretide pump. Now my question is:
1. Being 22 months how much mucospect should i give as the dose indicates 2 years - 4 years 5ml. I gave her 3ml and gave it in the morning and about 15h00 - is this ok or should i give the total 5ml?
2, Because i gave her the Seretide pump, mucospect and then ponstil this morning i never gave her her viral guard as i was nervous givnig all these medicines at once. Can i give it to her with the others or should i just leave it for now?
Thank you so much for your assistance - I would not have got my child to this stage without your help!

You are welcome. The dose of Mucospect for your little girl is 5ml which should be given morning and evening. You can hold off with the Viral Guard for now until she is better and then she can start again.
