Give Combizol F Syrup to your child orally, preferably at a fixed time, either before or after food. In case your child develops a stomach upset, prefer giving it with food. The usually prescribed frequency is twice a day, once in the morning and once in the evening. If your child vomits within 30 minutes of intake, repeat the same dose but never double up the dose if it is time for the next dose. The dose and duration depend upon the type and severity of the infection, your child’s age, and body weight, so stick to the dose, time, and way prescribed by the doctor.

Some children may develop minor and temporary side effects after taking this medicine. These include nausea, vomiting, metallic taste, headache, loss of appetite, abdominal cramps, and mild skin rash. These side effects usually go away once your child’s body adapts to the medicine. However, in case they persist for long or start bothering your child, you must consult your child’s doctor without any delay.

Your child’s doctor must be aware if your child has ever had any previous episode of allergy, heart problem, liver impairment, and kidney malfunction. This will guide the doctor in planning your child’s overall treatment.

FAQs

Q. My child is having a genetic deficiency of the G6PD enzyme. Is it safe to give Combizol F Syrup?

It is advised that you get your child’s G6PD deficiency evaluated before starting the course of treatment. Avoid giving Combizol F Syrup as deficiency of G6PD enzymes can lead to breaking of blood cells resulting in severe anemia.

Q. Can Combizol F Syrup be given along with cough and cold medicines?

No, do not give Combizol F Syrup with cough and cold medicines. Combizol F Syrup can interact with alcohol-containing medicines like cough syrups and cause disulfiram reaction, leading to side effects such as nausea, vomiting, flushing, dizziness, etc.

Q. What if I give excess Combizol F Syrup by mistake?

An extra dose of Combizol F Syrup is unlikely to cause any harm. But, you must still be vigilant because overdose increases the risk of unwanted side effects such as seizures, tremors, severe headache, sudden weakness, blood cell abnormalities, and rapid and irregular heartbeat. Rush to your child’s doctor on an immediate basis if you notice any of these symptoms. If you think you have given too much Combizol F Syrup to your child, immediately speak to a doctor.

Q. What should I do if my child shows no improvement even after taking Combizol F Syrup for the prescribed duration?

Speak to your child’s doctor if your child does not show any improvement even after completing the dose. It could mean that the medicine is not able to act against the infection-causing bacteria. Your child’s doctor may change Combizol F Syrup and prescribe some other antibiotic which is known to have a stronger impact on the infection-causing bacteria.

Q. Can other medicines be given at the same time as Combizol F Syrup?

Combizol F Syrup can sometimes interact with other medicines or substances. Tell your doctor about any other medicines your child is taking before starting Combizol F Syrup. Also, check with your child’s doctor before giving any medicine to your child.

Q. Can I get my child vaccinated while on treatment with Combizol F Syrup?

Antibiotics usually do not interfere with the ingredients in vaccines or cause a bad reaction in a child who has just been vaccinated. However, children taking antibiotics should not get vaccinated until they recover from the illness. As soon as your child feels better, the vaccine can be given.

Q. What should I tell the doctor before giving Combizol F Syrup to my child?

Inform the doctor if your child is suffering from heart disease, genetic disorders involving blood vessels, seizures, psychiatric disorders, diabetes, photoallergy (allergy from sunlight), neuromuscular disorders, or rheumatoid arthritis. This is because there is a possibility that Combizol F Syrup may aggravate these conditions and result in complications.
