Brief Answer:
is it drops or syrup

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for writing to health care magic.
Are you having mucolite drops or syrup?
If it is drops then you can give 0.5ml twice daily.
If it is syrup then you can give 2.5ml twice daily.
Both have same medicine ambroxol in different concentration.
That is the reason for the different dosage between drops and syrup.
Regards
