Welcome to health care magic family, your daughter is having dry cough for last month and running nose. As your doctor has prescribe syrup Levolin,which is bronchodilator, dilates the bronchi oles of respiratory tract leading to easy and comfortable respiration.

It is safe and can be given for long time under doctor's supervision. Some time this syrup may produce slight rise of pulse, but there is nothing to worry. Avoid over dose as it may cause restlessness to child.

I think this will satisfy your query. If you have any doubt, please feel free to ask again.
