I gave my 4 year old 5ml of Delsym by accident. What to do?

Customer Question

I gave my 4 year old 5ml of Delsym by accident. I tried calling poison control but no answer
I have not seen a doctor about this yet. He just has a cough.
This was the first time giving him this medicine for the cough. He has had it for a day or 2.

Hello,
There are different preparations of delsym.
Usually a total of 30 mg is recommended in a day in this age.
5 mg/5 ml would not cause problem in this age.
I hope this information will be helpful. If you have any query, please feel free to ask.
Wish him a healthy life.
Regards
