Hello doctor,

Is there any problem if syrup Vitcofol is given along with syrup Zincovit to 1-year-old baby?

#

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

There is no harm in giving these both medications because both of them have a different mode of action but the important point to consider is that try to give one medicine at lunchtime and another one at dinner. Do not give them at the same time. These two medicines will effect this way properly when you give them with a time difference. One medicine is an iron supplement, and the other one is Vitamin B complex.
