YOUR CHILD’S MEDICINE AT A GLANCE
A common antibiotic is called Cynofix-DS. It is frequently administered to kids to treat a variety of bacterial infections that affect the lungs, skin, gastrointestinal tract, urinary tract, ears, eyes, nose, and throat. Additionally, it works well for treating typhoid fever in kids and teenagers.
Give your child this medication one or two hours before or after meals. If your child starts to experience stomach upset, give it food instead. Keep in mind that the dosage was determined after taking into account your child’s age, weight, and body type, as well as the type and severity of the infection. If your child vomits up the medication within 30 minutes of taking it, give them another dose, but do not give them a double dose.
Since this medication is an antibiotic and does not treat viral illnesses, do not give it to your child if they are showing signs of the cold or flu. Only when a subsequent bacterial infection is discovered as the underlying cause of the cough and cold, do doctors give this medication. Vomiting, diarrhea, nausea, rash, and headaches are a few of this medication’s minor and transient side effects. These bouts typically end as your child’s body adjusts to the medication.
However, if your kid experiences any of these side effects that last or become troublesome, tell your doctor immediately away. Give the doctor a detailed account of your child’s medical history, mentioning any instances of allergy, heart condition, blood disease, birth defect, airway blockage, lung anomaly, gastrointestinal issue, skin condition, liver dysfunction, and kidney dysfunction.
