Pediatrician 's  Response
Hi,
Thank you for asking question on health care magic
As you have rightly pointed out both medicines are related to cough.
Tuspel plus is a bronchodilator and an expectorant whereas relent plus contains antihistamie and mucolytic drugs
if your problem is only cold and cough you may continue relent plus.
both syrups need not be given
but a rational alternative is sinarest syrup if associated with fever.
if no fever sinarest AF syrup given 3 times daily.
Hope this answer will serve your purpose
Please feel free to ask any more queries if required
Take care
