My son is 2 months old and he is suffering with dry cough over the last 3 days. We consulted local doctor and he advised TA-65 capsule which can be taken by mixing one capsule in 10 cc of distilled water. He advised to use 2 mL of this mixture for 3 days. My question is how exactly does TA-65 work for cough?
Welcome to icliniq.com.
Your kid is probably suffering from some throat infection or lung infection (respiratory infection).
TA - 65 is a telomerase activator, it comes in capsule form. It is used to boost immune system, skin and given for sexual improvement. It has no role in cough and it is not given in children. I advice you to not to give this medicine to a child.
You should probably consult a different pediatrician there as rest of medication like antibiotics or medicated nebulization or any investigation needed. It cannot be advised without examining the child.
Viral infection of respiratory tract.Investigations to be done:
1. CBP (complete blood picture).
2. CRP (C-reactive protein).
3. Chest x-ray if required.
1. Upper respiratory infection.
1) Kufril LS drops (Ambroxol hydrochloride and Salbutamol), 4 drops, three times a day.
2) Nebulization with 3% NaCl (Sodium chloride), 3-4 times a day as required.
Avoid cold weather and maintain hygiene.
