Can Phexin dry syrup be given to a child?

Sir,The Phexin Dry Syrup, which i bought for my daughter has slight bitter taste after reconstituting.In fact i checked a couple of bottles and there is difference in the intensity. Is it safe to give her this syrup? The bottles are kept in refrigerator.

Hi...cough and cold are viral in origin 95% of the times in kids. usually they do not warrant antibiotics.

All the dry syrups once reconstituted should be kept in fridge. If not the efficacy will be altered.

I suggest you use a fresh bottle if prescribed by your pediatrician. Do not use antibiotics on your own.
