My son (1-years 8-month old & weighing 12.5 kg) has recently developed fever (100-101 F) with mild cold & cough. We have seen a pediatric doctor, who (in addition to calpol syrup) has prescribed a bunch of medicines as follows -
1) Syrup Moxclav (228.5 mg / 5 ml) 3 ml BD for 5-days
2) Syrup Zincovit 1 TSP OD for 2-weeks
3) Syrup Ascoril D 1 TSP TDS for a week
4) Econorm sachet OD for a week.
However, my son seems to become quite restless (specially at night) after starting these new medicines. He suddenly wakes up at 2 AM & then plays for next couple of hours & finally sleeps again at 4 AM, which we had never faced before.
By googling, I found syrup Ascoril D' should not be given to kids younger than 4-years & it also has side effects like agitation etc. Can you kindly review rest of the medicines & advise whether any of them should be stopped immediately ?

When the child is sick he he is not playing

completed his quota of sleep and gets up they don't know about the time.but parents get disturbed.
