Hello and thanks for your query.

I shall make an effort to provide you with good professional recommendations specific to your questions.

I realize that your baby's health is of concern now.

Reading your history, and her present status - that she is repeatedly vomiting, and eating nothing - are enough reason to get your child admitted at once to specialist pediatrician IMMEDIATELY.

Levolin medicine is a short term used for relaxing her airways to help her breathe. Don't worry, it will not do any harm. It is a quite safe drug. As much as Bricaryl.

Excessive sleeping is not a side effect of any of her prescribed drugs - but is due to exhaustion and ill health. Children generally tend to sleep more, and during viral fevers the body is extremely tired. It is normal, but just keep a watch as to her breathing sounds, her sleeping positions.

Foul smelling stools are also a sign of infection in the gut, I would advise a stool examination to make sure it is not amoebiasis/bacterial dysentry along with the viral fever.

Your doctor also has prescribed Meftal - for relieving her abdominal pain and Enterogermina which is safe probiotic without any drug in it. It has a good bacteria in it necessary to get the balance in her intestines to stop the diarrhoea.

I think her treatment is going on well, but kindly look into her eating and repeated vomiting issues.

Yet again, I duly appreciate your query to me, I do hope that you have found something useful to help you and I shall be glad to answer any further apprehensions.
