My son is 4 yrs old and has not had a full night sleep or a nap in 2 days. He is irritable and not himself at all. My son is usually a very laid back 4 yr old who sleeps through the night and takes a nap daily until we started using delsym. We will not be using this medication again.

I took my son to urgent care where they suggested that I give him Delsym, prior to that I had never heard of it! He's 2.5 and the doctor didn't recommend a doseage. I had no idea what it could do!
