Can we give asthakind expectorant syrup to the seven-year-old child and what is the dosage? Please suggest to me.

Children often suffer form recurrent respiratory infections. Every time an antibiotic is prescribed. Ima warns not to give antibiotics so frequently. As a result, the infection keeps happening and then the child develops cough as the body tries to take out all the mucous of the precious recurrent infections. I strongly recommend not to give any couch syrup as it will just be a temporary suppression. The cough will return again after the suppressive action of the drug is exhausted.
