Thank you for your query.
I advise you to consult a Pediatrcian for proper examination of your child and proper medication dosage.
Relent + 5 ml thrice daily is excess dosage for your child and I advise you to stop the medication as it will lead to drug over dosage and drowsiness.
Don't use medication without a Pediatrician advise for your chiold.
Hope I have answered your query.
