Hi,
Thanks and welcome to HM.
Phenobarbitone is a sedative and salbutamol is a bronchodilator.
Salbutamol may be used if the cough associated with wheezing.
For the symptoms you mentioned I would like to prescribe:
flucold drops 5 drops 3 times daily.
Amoxy kid 125 mg DT 1/2 tablet 3 times daily.
Steam inhalation if possible.
Hope this answer will serve your purpose.
I shall be happy to answer more queries if required.
Dr.M.V.Subramanyam.
