Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
The drug that you mentioned contains tipepidine hibenzate. Namely, antitussive and expectorant class of drugs. Works by helping to expel phlegm or phlegm of the airways. So that it can be used to treat coughs, colds (common cold or flu), bronchitis, pneumonia, pulmonary TB and asthma.
Every drug does have side effects. You can read the side effects of this drug on the packaging or instructions for using the drug. It's not right if you have a cold due to this drug. Instead this drug will help relieve the symptoms of cold flu. But of course the drug will work well if used with the correct dosage and method.
However, this drug only helps to relieve symptoms and cure, not cure the cause. You should bring back the control brother with a pediatrician. So that doctors can conduct further tests to find out the cause of the disease. If it is caused by a bacterial infection, it certainly requires antibiotic medication. As long as the cause of the complaint is not handled, the complaint will slowly improve.
Meanwhile, Mother can give you a mixture of natural cough medicines, which are squeezed oranges mixed with honey brewed with warm water. Ibuk can also do a nasal wash. Mothers can read the method here or use a special nasal wash tool for sale at pharmacies.
Thus hopefully useful.
