Hello,

Montek is a safer drug in 6-year-old kid. it is given once daily dose in the evening or night.

It will reduce the inflammation of air passages thereby it will reduce cough. you can give to 40- 60 days. no problem.

Naturally, you can improve immunity by giving vaccination at an appropriate time. give citrus fruits, eggs, and green leafy vegetables.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Rajmohan, Pediatrician
