She should be able to tolerate this dose but please don't use Coryx which contains pseudoephedrine and is no longer recommended for children 2 years and younger.She will be quite hyped up from the pseudoephedrine in the dose you have given her. Just use Panado, saline nose drops and give lots of fluids to drink and your little girl will soon be well again.
