Hello.
Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
Dexorange syrup is an iron based preparation given to enhance the body iron stores and to cure anaemia.In a 3 year old girl you can safely give two teaspoonfuls ten ml once daily preferably half an hour before any meal.It can cause constipation as side effect.
