Thank you,

Benadryl-25 mg tablet every 12 hours

Cough syrup with active ingredient Dextromethorphan (Plain Roitussin for cough only) every 6 hours as needed

The benadryl and cough syrup can be given together

How does that sound?

You have liquid what? Benadryl? If he is 25 pounds then you have to give him 10 mls every 12 hours. That is a lot of liquid so I would go out and buy 25 mg tablets.

Does that help?
