  • Ask your doctor

  • You have this under toddlers, how old is your child?
    Promethazine is a prescription medication that is not written for toddlers and toddlers should not be given mucinex!
    Call the pediatrician!

  • Um... how the hell old is the child? You doctor can give you this information, or at the very least your pharmacist can guide you.

  • What does the pediatrician say?

  • Did you call the pediatrician before giving him anything? Ask about interaction and your baby.

  • NO. Unless your doctor says otherwise. In order to know for sure, you need to ask the child's doctor.
