Hello and thank you for your question. I understand your concern. If she only had 1 dose that was a bit much, she more than likely is just fine. If you have been giving your daughter the Bromfed every 8 hours, it will just take a bit longer for that larger dose to metabolize out of her system. If you have not already, I would withhold any further doses of the medication today. As for her urinary frequency, this should not be due to the Bromfed.

Does your daughter have any other symptoms along with urinating more frequently such as pain with urination, stomach ache or fever? If so, these could be a sign of a urinary tract infection, and she should be seen by her doctor within the next day or so. If she has no other symptoms, her increased urination could just be due to adequate hydration. I would monitor this over the course of the week. If the urinary frequency gets worse or she starts to have accidents, she should be evaluated by her doctor.
