Hi Doctor,

1. Vomiting
2. Fever
3. Cough and cold
4. Loose motions

Anything else which you can suggest in general. Thanks.

Regards,
XXXX

List provided

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone carefully through your query and understand your concerns. The following medicines would be of help:
* Syr Ondem (ondansetron) for vomiting
* Syr Sumol (paracetamol) for fever
* Atarax Drops (Hydroxizine) for cough and cold
* Pedialyte or ORS (oral rehydration solution) for loose motions.
* Colicaid Drops for incessant cry which could occur due to colics.

If you could mention the body weight I could suggest the doses.

Let me know if I could help further.

Regards

Hi Doctor,
Her weight was 9.6 KGs 10 days back at the time of her vaccination.

Please suggest the doses. Also, we had Sinarest AF drops and calpol drops with us which were suggested to her when she had cough and fever 2 months back. Can we use them as well for cough and fever? We had put them in refrigerator since then.

Regards,
XXXX

Brief Answer:
Dose mentioned

Detailed Answer:
* Syr Ondem (ondansetron) 2.5 ml when needed for vomiting
* Syr Sumol (paracetamol) 1.5 ml per dose if there is fever
* Atarax Drops (Hydroxizine) 1ml thrice daily for 4-5 days for cough and cold.
Sinarest AF is an alternative to Atarax. One of the two can be used. You can use Sinarest AF if you have it.
* Pedialyte or ORS (oral rehydration solution) sip by sip frequently for loose motions.
* Colicaid Drops 1ml when needed for incessant cry.
