My 15yr old son has Type1 juvenile diabetes. Yesterday he developed sinus congestion with a cough. His brother had the same symptoms last week so im pretty sure its same cold and will last 3-4 days req.no more than simple over the counter meds. However as this is the 1st time he's been ill since finding the diabetes I am unsure if this med is safe for diabetics or if there's a carb/sugar count per dose? The label doesn't say what possible effects to blood sugar there there may be. For all I know no insulin adjustment is needed & im worried for nothing but the fear of what if is stopping me. My son just wants to stop coughing long enough to sleep. What do I do?
Check with doctor or pharmacist. This contains alcohol. There Are better choices.
There are sugar free cough medicines, and like was suggested talk to the pharmacist for the best one to use.
