My child is 8 and weighs 65lbs. The over the counter meds are not getting it at night. She can't rest.

She can have a tsp of it every 4 hrs.
I'm going to assume you are asking about Robitussin for adults, not Children's Robitussin.
This is probably written on the bottle for future reference: Robitussin DM and Cough & Cold: Take every 6 to 8 hours as follows: Adults 12 years and over: 10 mL. Children 6 to under 12 years: 5 mL. Children 2 to under 6 years: 2.5 mL. Children under 2 years: consult a physician.
You would give your child 5ml of Robitussin, not Children's Robitussin.
