He has a cold, so the pharmacist recommended mucinex cold for kids. I gave it to him this morning and he became wired all afternoon. 5 hours later I repeated the dose (5MLs) before bed, although it said every 4. This time he went crazy hyper, laughing, crying, bouncing off walls, floors, whatever. It took 2 hours to calm him down. I checked the label and there were several dyes including yellow 5 and red 40.
So I have heard things about red dye causing issues like this...but I have also read where people have refuted it. Thoughts? Experiences?
