Thanks for the query
Give him Taxim-o total for 7 days, omnacortil for not more than 5 days, as long term steroid usage acn cause various complication. You can continue Timinic for 7 days.Both doxophyllin and levolin are airway dilator and should not be used only for cough. There must be some spasm in airway for using bronchodilators. So if you notice noisy breathing or labored breathing then only use of levolin or doxophyllin is justified. Also give Syp. Zinc 5 ml once a day for 14 days for early recovery and use digene syr. 2.5 ml with omnacortil to combat some of its gastric side effects.
I hope this answers your query well
Wish you and your family good health
