My son is suffering from cough. Doctor prescribed him Ascoril LS syrup 4 ml 3 times a day. Is syrup safe for 10 month infant since Ascoril LS drops are available for infants.

If formulation is same for both then it is just for easy administration important is dose given to child and its per ml contents. Sy some times may cause diarrhoea so take care and consult doctor if any problem.
Dont give the syrup. Simply take some ajvain roast it over pan than let it cool n make its mixture, make mixture of ginger and saunt. Add all three n gave with honey within days the cough will get clear up. You can also boil tulsi leaves n gave its water every half an hr. If the baby vomits dont panic its good as it will expell to the cough.
