Wikoryl contains 500mgs of Acetaminophen, 5mgs of Phenylehprine and 5mgs of Chlorpheniramine. You child is 10yrs old and you have given her two doses of half tab of wikoryl at 3.hrs 30mins interval. Better if you give it 6hrly basis. The problem is Chlorpheniramine which causes increasesd sedation leading to drowsiness, dizziness, confusion, blurred vision, and Restlessness, shallow breathing, hallucinations, irritability by causing paradoxical nervousness.
