My child is 8 and weighs 65lbs. The over the counter meds are not getting it at night. She can't rest.
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.
She can have a tsp of it every 4 hrs.
