Is it okay to give him Rosutussin while taking antibiotics?

My son (4yrs) has a cold and an ear infection. He is taking amoxocillon for the ear infection, but he is having coughing fits at night and it's really affecting his sleeping. He has some Robutusson that the Dr gave the last time he was coughing. Is it okay to give him Rosutussin while taking antibiotics?

  • I'd call and ask a pharmacist (let them know your child's age when you ask).

  • I'd check the expiration date if he was given it for his last cold. Medicines don't last forever.
