Is there anything like medised, not for sedative reasons but drying up mucus. Poor DS2 is suffering: (

I would just get the medised and lie, tbh.

At the pharmacy I last went to, the medised said 2+ on it but the pharmacist said it was old packaging and it is now 6+.
This is not very helpful for an 18month old is it, but I don't think they have changed the product just changed the rules.

Saline drops? To make it runnier and easier to clear.

Sudafed liquid is what you want - dries up mucus a treat. DS has been prescribed it by the GP for his chest as it is supposed to be prescription only for under 6, but there is no paracetamol in it

Or get a nasal asperator and suck the snot out. I use one on my dc's and they are brilliant.

Can't I give medised to my 2+ year old?


He is so snotty and it's the only thing that is helping him at the moment. I was sure it said 1-6 yr olds, take 1-2 5ml spoons 3-4 times daily.....

think rules have changed, rather than the contents of the bottle. Occasional use to dry up a cold is unlikely to be harmful. Although don't come running down the street after me - i'm not responsible! I gave no advice!
