Your Child’s Medicine At a Glance

ऐल्टैक्स-ओ ड्राय सिरप एक एंटीबायोटिक दवा है.. It is commonly given to children to treat a wide range of bacterial infections targeting the ear, eyes, nose, throat, lungs, skin, gastrointestinal tract, and urinary tract. It can also be used in treating uncomplicated typhoid fever in children and adolescents.

Altax-O Dry Syrup is best given an hour before or two hours after meals as that ensures better absorption. In case your child develops a stomach upset, prefer giving it with meals. The dose and duration depend upon the type and severity of the infection, so stick to the dose, time, and way prescribed by the doctor. If your child vomits within 30 minutes of the intake, give the same dose again but do not double dose if it's the time for the next dose.

Do not give this medicine to your child in case of cold and flu symptoms as they are usually caused by viruses, and antibiotics don’t treat viral infections. Doctors prescribe this medicine for cough and cold only when they detect any underlying secondary bacterial infection.

This medicine may have some minor and temporary side effects such as vomiting, diarrhea, nausea, abdominal pain, and allergy. Usually, these episodes subside once your child’s body adapts to the medicine. However, if these side effects persist or become bothersome for your child, report to the doctor without any delay.

Narrate your child’s complete medical history to your child’s doctor, including any previous episode of allergy, heart problem, blood disorder, birth defects, airway obstruction, lung anomaly, gastrointestinal problem, skin disorder, liver impairment, and kidney malfunction. This information is critical for dose alterations and for planning your child’s overall treatment.

Benefits of Altax-O Dry Syrup for your child

Do you have any questions related to Altax-O Dry Syrup

अक्सर पूछे जाने वाले प्रश्न

Q. What if I give too much of Altax-O Dry Syrup by mistake?

An extra dose of Altax-O Dry Syrup is unlikely to do harm. However, if you think you have given too much of Altax-O Dry Syrup to your child, immediately speak to a doctor. Overdose may cause unwanted side effects and may even worsen your child’s condition.

Q. Are there any possible serious side effects of Altax-O Dry Syrup?

Some serious side effects of this medicine include persistent vomiting, kidney damage, allergy, diarrhea, and severe gastrointestinal infections. Always consult your child’s doctor for help in such a situation.

Q. What other medicines should not be given along with Altax-O Dry Syrup?

Avoid giving Altax-O Dry Syrup along with medicines like aminoglycosides such as amikacin, gentamicin, streptomycin, anticoagulants (blood-thinners) such as warfarin, PPIs like pantoprazole, and H2 blockers such as famotidine. Before you start giving Altax-O Dry Syrup to your child, let your child’s doctor know if your child is taking any of the above-mentioned medicines.

Q. Can I vaccinate my child while he is taking Altax-O Dry Syrup?

It is advised to inform the doctor if your child is taking Altax-O Dry Syrup at the time of vaccinations like BCG, cholera, and typhoid as Altax-O Dry Syrup can neutralize the effect of these vaccines.

Q. Which lab tests may my child undergo while taking Altax-O Dry Syrup on a long-term basis?

The doctor may prescribe getting kidney function tests and liver function tests periodically to keep a check on your child’s condition.

क्यू. The mucus coming out of my child’s nose is yellow-green. Is it a sign of a bacterial infection?

Yellow or green mucus in the nose does not mean that antibiotics are needed. During a common cold, it is normal for mucus to thicken up and change from clear to yellow or green. Symptoms often last for 7-10 days.

Q. My child is having a sore throat and ear infection. Can I give antibiotics?

No. More than 80% of sore throats and ear infections are caused by a virus and antibiotics are not given for viral infections. If your child has a sore throat, runny nose, a barky cough, pain,, and discharge from the ear, it is most likely because of a virus. Consult your child’s doctor to seek guidance.

Q. Does a common cold caused by viruses always result in a secondary bacterial infection? When to start an antibiotic to prevent infection?

In most cases, bacterial infections do not follow viral infections. Using antibiotics to treat viral infections may instead lead to side effects without benefiting your child's health. Use antibiotics only after consulting with your child’s doctor.

Q. Can Altax-O Dry Syrup impact my child’s digestive system?

Children often have a sensitive stomach and develop a stomach upset while taking antibiotics. When antibiotics are given, the good bacteria in their gastrointestinal tract may take a hit too. Altax-O Dry Syrup may kill off the good bacteria along with the bad, increasing the risk of developing other infections. In case your child is having diarrhea while on Altax-O Dry Syrup, do not stop the medicine course. Instead, call your child’s doctor to ask about the next steps. In some cases, the doctor may alter the dose.

Q. Can Altax-O Dry Syrup lead to bacterial resistance in my child?

Yes, irregular treatment, repeated use,, and misuse of Altax-O Dry Syrup can lead to resistance. Resistant bacteria are no longer killed by the antibiotics and may lead to reinfection.
