Q.

Tons of medications

My 4 year old has an chest and throat infection at the moment, she also has mild asthma.

So she is getting loads of medicine at the moment, is it ok to give it to her all at one time (i''m worried about them mixing in her stomach)

She is getting antibiotics (orolox at the moment), creche guard, deselex and mucospect. She is also taking probiotics and singulaire.

This just seems like so much?

Your little daughter is on a lot of medicines at present. The problem is that she has developed a chest and throat infection and she also has an asthma problem.All she really needs to be taking for the next 5 days or so is the Orelox, Mucospect and Singulair.Once you have completed the antibiotic course you can restart the Creche Guard and the probiotic and Deselex.Keep on with the Singulair. The mucospect should also be stopped once the antibiotic course is complete.
