What is Tixylix Toddler Syrup For Dry Tickly Coughs?
This Tixylix medicine is a form of treatment that helps to treat a dry tickly cough. The syrup contains the active ingredient glycerol, which helps to lubricate the throat and mouth that have become irritated.
What causes a dry cough?
A dry cough can be caused by several different conditions, and it is not always obvious what that cause is. A dry cough can be caused by an infection, such as a cold or the flu, or it can be caused by an allergy, asthma, heartburn, as well as more serious conditions such as lung disease.
Who is this Tixylix medicine suitable for?
This medicine is suitable to be used by children aged 3 months to 5 years. Do not use if the child is allergic to glycerol or any other ingredient contained in the medicine.
Can this medicine be used by adults and children over the age of 5?
There is no reason why an adult and children over the age of 5 can use this medicine. However, it is only intended for children aged 3 months to 5 years. Therefore, there is no evidence of any problems or how effective it is as a medication. If you need cough treatment, speak to a doctor or Chemist 4 U pharmacist for advice.
How should Tixylix Toddler Syrup For Dry Tickly Coughs be used?
Children aged 3-12 months should have 5ml spoonful 3-4 times a day. Allow 3-4 hours between giving them doses. For children aged 1-5 years, increase the dose from 5ml to 10ml. If the child’s condition does not improve after 3 days of use, speak to a doctor.
