Sever cough, running nose. Recommended phenergan. Can we crocin with it?

Hello Doctor, My kid is 2.8 years. She has severe cough and running nose. Constant cough also means she cannot sleep peacefully. The pediatrician recommended Phenergan ( promethazine ) before sleep. We just noticed that she has slight fever (about 100.5). This generally increases when she sleeps. Question: Can we give Crocin with Phenergan (seperated by an hour). Other medications she is currently taking: Azithral (200) and Montair LC kid syrup. Any concerns with this combination..? Thanks, Amit

Your kid has got Viral fever.
Azithromycin is given to prevent secondary infection.Montair LC kid syrup has Antihistamine which clears running nose.It can also reduce Cough.
Actually,kid should sleep well as Sedation is seen with Antihistamine Levocetrizine which is present in syrup.
As fever is present,Crocin can be given in regular intervals.
In my opinion,it is better not to give Phenargan for your kid .In my experience,one patient has woke up after 12 hrs of giving Phenargan.It should be given under supervision of a Doctor.Better avoid it.
I wish good health for your kid and speedy recovery
