Welcome back to icliniq.com.
Ascoril LS is good in this situation. There are other options like Ambrolite Levo syrup but it has the same medicines in it. So no point in changing to another syrup. Usually, cough syrups are tried to provide symptomatic relief and are a mixture containing an expectorant, mucolytic and antihistamines. For your daughter, the cough syrup also contains a bronchodilator (Levosalbutamol) to help her breathe better and manage the wheeze. If wheeze and cough are troublesome, Monticope syrup can be helpful. If wheeze is recurrent and present even after cold has subsided, she may need a regular bronchodilator inhaler with a spacer to manage wheeze. Any family history of asthma and allergy may be relevant.
I will recommend a review with your pediatrician locally to examine your child, assess her symptoms and make changes as needed. Meanwhile, as I mentioned earlier, give her frequent sips of warm water, make her sleep reclining with head in a slightly higher position for additional symptomatic relief.
