They are suitable. Comments included.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

* Fection Syrup (Amoxycillin + Clavulanic Acid) is suitable for a 4.5 year old child. Usually we prescribe for 5 days but it may vary depending on why it is being given.
* Please mention the composition of Mackof-Tg. If it contains Dextromethorphan, it is allowable but since it is a cough suppressant, we do not generally recommend it. Instead we usually recommend some mucolytic which works the opposite way and makes the cough productive.
* Allerhin L (Levocetirizine) is suitable and needs to be given for a few days. Usually 2-5 days is sufficient.

Along with it, give steam inhalation. Water in form of vapor reaches deep inside and helps in diluting the cough and thus provides relief.
