Also asked, is prospan good for cough?

Prospan Cough Syrup is an effective treatment for chesty (productive) coughs. Prospan contains active ingredient Hedera Helix (Ivy Leaf Extract) which helps liquify and clear mucus from the airways and relax and calm convulsive coughing. Troublesome and painful coughing is calmed but not blocked.

Also Know, can you get cough medicine for babies? When you have a cough or cold, you might reach for over-the-counter (OTC) drugs to ease your symptoms. But you can't do that for babies or toddlers. Cough and cold medicines that are safe for grownups can cause serious side effects -- even life-threatening ones -- in children under age 2.

Consequently, what age can you give babies cough medicine?

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recommends that children under the age of two should never be given over-the-counter (OTC) cough or cold medications. However, most cough and cold products state that cough and cold medicine should not be given to children under the age of four.

How do you use prospan cough syrup?

Take 5 mL (1 tsp.), 3 times daily for at least 1 week. Do not exceed the recommended daily dose. Directions of Use: Take Prospan by Helixia for at least 1 week or longer depending on the nature and severity of your condition.
