I suggest you ask his doc, as it has codeine in it and because cough syrup can be a problem in young children.

I agree, there have been problems with kids getting poisoned by codeine. Some people cant metabolize it and with children toxicity happens a lot quicker.

If you cannot reach his pediatrician tonight and you need to give him something, it would be better to give him plain Robitussin over the counter cough syrup. Plain Robitussin always worked quite well for my kids. I never gave them any with codeine.

Hello megrene. Not recommended to give this drug to children (usually given eight years and older) unless directed by a doctor. Regards pledge
