In Reply to: cough medicine makes him bounce off walls? posted by DSG on March 21, 2000 at 23:24:28:

: Our child is not taking any medicine for add,we have managed to control his behavior with different approaches and diet but when we give him Robitussin DM
: he is uncontrolable and cannot focus is there a certain ingredient we should avoid or maybe a different medicine that would be better. Has anybody else experienced this? Thanks
:
You must also remember that most cough medicines contain alcohol which can adversly affect many people especially kids. Check the lables and try a cough medication that does not contain alcohol. Also unless your child needs an expectorant to help loosen up phlegm I would not use the Robitussin DM . Use a plain cough med if needed and keep plenty of hard candy in the house during the cold season to help calm a cough. Another good home remedy is to use about 5-10cc of honey thinned to cough syrup consistency with several drops of very warm water. Good Luck.l
