my three year old went to the ER for high fever cough and vomiting, he had a chest x ray done and a flu test. the ER doctor told me he was fine and proceeded to prescribe zofran and promethazine w/codiene to him.. i later found out that the zofran which she told me was a cough med. is a med used for cancer patients to prevent vomiting after chemo, i also researched and found that neither of these meds should be given to children under six years old, and suggestions on what i can or should do? i have stopped giving it to him obviously...
