Thanks for the query

First of all I would like to assure that, nothing is going to happen with a single high dose of Ambroxlite 2S

Ambrolite 2S contains 30 mg of Ambroxol per 5 ml of the liquid, ideally children aged 2 years require 22.5mg of Ambroxol per day, but a little more than the normal dose a day will not cause significant side effects. Do not give any more medicine of Ambrolite -2S for another 36 hours. Give adequate water for the child to prevent any dehydration.

Henceforth be careful while you give medicines for the kid as some medicines might cause serious side-effects.
