Major Pharm Diphenhyd, 100 caps
This combination medication is used to temporarily treat symptoms caused by the common cold, flu, allergies, or other breathing illnesses (such as sinusitis, bronchitis). Dextromethorphan is a cough suppressant that affects a certain part of the brain, reducing the urge to cough. Decongestants help relieve stuffy nose and ear congestion symptoms. Acetaminophen (APAP) is a non-aspirin pain reliever and fever reducer. Antihistamines help relieve watery eyes, itchy eyes/nose/throat, runny nose, and sneezing.
This medication is not usually used for ongoing coughs from smoking, asthma, or other long-term breathing problems (such as emphysema), or for coughs with a lot of mucus, unless directed by your doctor.
Some medications are nonprescription products, while others need a doctor's prescription. Some manufacturers do not recommend using their products in younger children due to possible side effects. Read the label on your specific product to see if it is recommended for your child based on age, and follow all instructions on the label. Always ask for specific instructions from the doctor or pharmacist about how often and how much of this product to give to your child. Do not give other medication that might contain the same or similar ingredients (see also Drug Interactions section). Ask the doctor or pharmacist about other ways to relieve stuffy nose symptoms (such as saline nose drops/spray, using a humidifier or infant nasal suction bulb).
