My 4 months old daughter had a flu and i took her to hospital. Doctor gave her Sekisan syrup (3 times per day) and we used it. i just noted that it is written on the medicine description that it should not be given for children less than 2 years old.
I need to know what is the effect exactly of giving Sekisan for 4 months baby. what could happened because of that ?
You have to ask that Dr directly to explain the prescription as there are probably reasons unique to the need, either way, that is the only source for the accurate answer in this case.
Hi, try not to worry, although the manufacturer states this age restriction, doctors can prescribe medications outside of this 'area' if they think the benefits outweigh the risks. Unless your daughter is showing symptoms of side effects and you need to seek further treatment for her, i would see if you can get hold of this doctor or your general practitioner to put your mind at rest/get some more advice...
