Thank you. Cough mixtures are no longer recommended for children as they do not help. Often these medicines contain ingredients such as pseudo ephedrine and codeine related compounds which should not be given to children younger than 2 years of age. Rather just keep your son's nose clear by using a saline nose spray and give him a medicine to help to thin the mucous in his chest and make it easier for him to cough it up.Mucospect is recommended, 5ml twice daily for 5 days.
