Antihistamine syrup (for older children also appears in the form of pills) that sometimes works wonders in treating runny nose and colds in young children for whom there are not so many treatment options.
Purpose of treatment:
The drug is registered for the prevention of bronchitis and for the treatment of a variety of allergic conditions. In practice, the antihistamine in the drug is not strong enough and the drug is not used as a treatment for real allergy conditions. However, the drug can be a therapeutic option in infants over six months of age with recurrent episodes of colds and bronchitis.
Ingredients: Ketotifen Fumarate - a first-generation antihistamine.
How to use:
In children from the age of six months to the age of 3 years – 2.5 CC (mililter) twice a day with food. For children over the age of 3 years (in which there are other treatment options that are better in my opinion) the dose is 5 CC (mililiter) twice a day with food.
For infants from the age of 6 months to 2 years old, there are not many treatment options for runny nose. I think that this syrup is one of the options that does the job.
Not common. If there are any, then they are related to the antihistamine component of the drug – dry mouth, dizziness, etc.
Another word from the doctor:
Profitae is a likable trick in babies as young as two years old where there are no other real treatment options. Children older than this age always have better options.
