My seven year old daughter was given this for a cough and I would like to know exactly how much codeine is in a teaspoon of this since she was prescribed 1 teaspoon every four to six hours. There is not anything on the bottle or paperwork from the pharmacy that tells how much codeine is in it.

If you do not have a dose-measuring device, ask your pharmacist for one, explain the situation and ask for them to help you (paperwork , etc..), I am sure they will.
I pray for your Princess to get well very soon.-
All the best,
