Baby having running nose, wet cough, intermittent fever, on Ambrolite-S and chericof. Treatment correct?

Hi, My son (8 months old; 6 kg) has been having a running nose from 17 Aug 2012. He was advised T-minic syrup (1 mL) initially and was changed to Chericof (1.5 mL) by his paediatrician from Sun, 19 Aug 2012. He is still on the same medication along with Calpol drops (0.75 mL SOS), but still has the following symptoms after 5 days-wet cough (sometimes he throws up after a bout of cough), running nose, intermittent fever . Today, 24 Aug when I consulted with his paediatrician (telephonic) he has advised me to put him on Ambrolite-S (2 mL) along with the Chericof (1.5 mL). Please advice me if this is fine. Can the 2 medications be administered simultaneously? Is this adequate or should the line of treatment change? Please provide me your valuable advice. Regards, Anna

General & Family Physician 's  Response
Ambrolite-S is secretolytic agent so given for thick mucus
Chericof is a cough suppressant.
It can be given together. but you have said that your child has fever for nearly 5 to 6 days along with running nose and cough.
It seems he may need a course of antibiotics calculated for his weight now.
Get your child to a pediatrician he may order some blood test or start antibiotics.
