Lariz DM Oral Suspension

Your Child’s Medicine At a Glance

Lariz DM Oral Suspension is given to children to treat dry cough. It also helps relieve symptoms of common cold and allergy such as runny nose, stuffy nose, sneezing, watery eyes, and congestion or stuffiness.

Give this medicine to your child by mouth with or without food with a full glass of water. It is preferred to give this medicine with food to avoid stomach upset. Always remember that the dosing schedule provided by your child’s doctor depends on the type of symptoms your child has, so make sure to follow the prescribed dose, time, and way strictly.

Give Lariz DM Oral Suspension at a fixed time each day so that it gradually makes a place in your child’s daily routine, which will help you to remember. If your child vomits within 30 minutes of taking this medicine give the same dose again. However, never repeat the dose if it's already time for the next dose.

Some of the minor and temporary side effects that your child may experience while taking this medicine include vomiting, diarrhea, nausea, dizziness, rash, and headache. Usually, these episodes subside once your child’s body adapts to the medicine. In case these effects persist or become bothersome for your child consult your child’s doctor without any delay.

Let your child’s doctor know in case your child is on any other medicine regime or has had any previous episodes of allergy, heart problems, blood disorders, birth defects, airway obstruction, lung anomaly, skin disorders, liver impairment, and kidney malfunction. This information is critical for dose alterations and for planning the overall treatment of your child.

Benefits of Lariz DM Oral Suspension for your child

In Treatment of Common cold symptoms

Lariz DM Oral Suspension is a combination medicine that effectively relieves symptoms of the common cold such as blocked nose, runny nose, watery eyes, sneezing, and congestion or stuffiness. To provide relief, it suppresses the cough center in the brain, helps cough out the mucus by making it thin, and blocks the action of a chemical called histamine.

It usually starts to work within a few minutes and the effects can last up to several hours. Your child may start to feel better within a week of regular dosing. However, you must still continue giving the medicine to your child to finish the complete prescribed course as stopping it abruptly may worsen your child’s condition.

In Treatment of Dry cough

A dry cough is a cough where no phlegm or mucus is produced. It may cause a tickling sensation or itching in the throat and may be due to cold, flu, allergies or throat irritants.

Drink plenty of fluids to replace those lost from sweating and having a runny nose, get plenty of rest, eat healthily ? a low-fat, high-fibre diet is recommended, including plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables.
