  • What did his physician say? I cannot diagnose without knowing the history of your son. I can tell you to read the label, but even then... you give no prior history. What if I say yes, but he's on a ton of other medications? What if he has Cancer or some other disease history?

    Sorry, my credentials say I cannot give advice....

  • Your doctor would only be able to tell you that - he knows his age, height, weight and history as M-avi has stated.

  • Call a doctor.
    And in my humble opinion, NO child should ever be given a "night-time" medicine.
