Brief Answer:
The given dose is suboptimal

Detailed Answer:
Hello


Thanks for asking on this platform

The most common cause of fever with loose stool and cough/cold in this age is some viral infection.
The main aim of management is to prevent dehydration and symptomatic treatment of cough and cold.
The average weight of 1.5 year's old child is about 10 kg.
The dose of paracetamol is 10-15 mg / kg / dose.5 ml of P 125 contains 125 mg of paracetamol.So the dose would be 5 ml.You can repeat the dose every 6-8 hourly depending on the situation.
Similarly dose of XXXXXXX would also be 3.5-5 ml per dose 3-4 times a day.
Give plenty of fluids (ORS ) to prevent dehydration.
Giving probiotic and zinc will help in early recovery.
Observe for any increase in symptoms,if there is any decreased activity,decreased frequency of urination or poor feeding and if you notice any consult your doctor immediately.

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