Brief Answer:
You may give mucolite safely

Detailed Answer:
Hello

Thanks for asking on this platform

Mucolite contains Ambroxol which is a mucolytic and acts by thinning of sputum.
It is a very safe medicine and can be given in any age group.
Very rarely can cause some gastrointestinal disturbances like nausea,vomiting which is not a serious matter.
So you can give the drops safely.

I hope this helps.
Please let me know if you have any more query.
