My daughter usually takes zyrtec so gave her it last night ar 9pm and she coughed all night I gave her C phen they cough medicine they gave her for a bad cold a year ago... Will these cause any breathing problems are just groggy ness from the medication.
The medicines should not cause breathing problems. Is she asthmatic?
C Phen (an antihistamine and decongestant mixture) would only help the cough if it's caused by post nasal drip (mucous running down the back of her throat).It could make her drowsy. C Phen is probably best avoided in any case as you are doubling up on antihistamines. (Zyrtec is also a long acting antihistamine).
If your daughter is having breathing problems she should see her doctor.
