Q.

Cough Mixture

I gave my 2 year 9 month old son 10ml of Lennon Cough Mixture last night and he was talking a lot in his sleep, full on conversations and sentences. When I walked into his room, he opened his eyes and said ' Mamma'  and then fell back asleep. He has done this before and I wondered if it could be the cough mixture? It contains Guaiphensin 100mg and Sodium Benzoate 0.1%.

This is a mild cough mixture and none of these ingredients are likely to cause your son to have nightmares or any other unusual behaviour.
