Thanks for the query
Your paediatrician has prescribed right medication for your daughter. If she is not responding to these cough medication then give her Augmentin syr 5ml thrice a day for 5 days and syp. Zinc 5 ml once a day for 14 days. Watch for increased respiratory distress and high temp. If you notice any of these then consult your doctor immediately.
