She has a cold, runny nose and a bad cough and it has now developed into bronchitis. She has exercise induced asthma. Her weight is 85#. My goodness... I read he side effects and I am thinking it's poison!
Crimdis; No don't give her a sulfa medication without the doctor prescribing it sometimes this is what is bad about having meds from someone else or for a different reason around. And no it is not poison if you read the side effects on any of the medications or a vitamin it would shock you!! For the most part, most of these side effects hopefully don't happen. Read some on Tylenol or Ibuprofen which I'm sure you know about and you well be just as surprised. Sometimes reading to much is not a good thing because some people the brain takes over and they well experience each and every one of them. Anyway no you never want to use a medication like this for what you are saying she needs to see a doctor if she does not get better by Monday. Chuck1957
