Proper Dosing for Children

Proper Cough Medicine Dosing for Children

Different medicines have different ingredients as well as different doses and concentrations.

Always remember:

  • Different medicines come with different dosing devices such as droppers and cups – always use the dosing device that comes with the product you have purchased.
  • Always use Robitussin products according to the label instructions on the package and bottle.
  • Never give your child two or more medicines that have the same active ingredient at the same time.
  • Do not give adult-strength medicine to your child.
  • Use only the medicine that treats your child’s specific symptoms.
  • Do not use Robitussin medicines to make your child sleepy.
