ds(11) has had a cough for over a week, today developed a rash . gp has prescribed meds but also I gave piriton at about 3.30. Now we can't remember whether I gave him one spoon or two , nor can he, and when I went to give him a bedtime dose realised it should have been 1 blush Obviously we gave him no more. Max dose is 6 spoons in 24 hours so assume he'll be ok , if sleepy ?

anyone ? ds says he's fine btw and dh says as it has already been over 4 hours it will be working out of the system as if he was having a second dose now.

he'll be fine. My 2 year old has two 5ml spoons at a time with no ill-effects.
