Since when has buttercup syrup been for over 12s?!

DD has a cough so I send OH out for buttercup syrup. She has had it before but not for a few years. On back of the bottle now though it says over 12yrs only. Does anybody know when this changed and more importantly why? DD is 9 and quite big for her age, do you think she'd be ok with a half dose? She had a terrible time last coughing and was hoping this would help. Thanks

Sorry I don't know but try one teaspoon of honey, a bit of lemon juice and hot water as a drink for her instead. Cough syrups don't do a lot other then soothe the throat which this does too.

I didn't know it had been! I gave it to my DD only a few weeks ago. Thanks for the heads up.
