Doctor:please ask me
User:my daughter who is 04 yrs old wt 15 kg is down with viral fever yesterday night
User:Today my paedetrician asked me to give P250 syrup 5ml in case of fever as my normal medicine CROCIN was out of stock
User:She had fever around 100 at 03 pm and i gave her that P20 medicine
User:immediately she puked out
Doctor:oh
User:i could not determine whether the medicine given by me was also puked out by her
User:so my question is how long do i wait before giving her the 2nd dose
User:and now i have got crocin from some medical store and i think she likes the taste and she may not puke
Doctor:no harm in it
Doctor:Please go ahead and give the crocin syrup right away
Doctor:it will benefit your daughter
Doctor:It is mostly sure that she would have puked the medicine P250 as well with the vomit
Doctor:Even if not, no harm in repeating with crocin now
