Bea is feeling under the weather. It must be the ever-changing weather here in Edmonton, Alberta. One day it is warm, full of sunshine, the next day it's snowing!
The other day, Bea came home with the sniffles. I just let her drink lots of fluids hoping she can fight off the virus naturally. After a few days, her cold is still there plus cough. Argh. She also is complaining of a headache. We had to go to the drug store to purchase a cold and cough medicine. That's what we miss from the Philippines, the usual medicines we are used to. Since moving here in Canada, we had no choice but to look for alternatives and adapt. So we went to Shopper's Drug Mart and browsed through the many choices of medicines in the cough/cold/fever aisle. Finally, we decided to get Tylenol Complete for Children. The bottle said it can relieve stuffy nose, aches and pains, fever, sore throat pain, dry cough, runny nose and sneezing. Plus, it has a bubble gum flavour.
For Bea's age, (6 to under 13 years old) dosage is 10 ml every 4 to 6 hours. But be careful not to give more than 4 doses in a day.
Hopefully this medication, plus lots of fluids, will help my Bea be back to her healthy, happy self in no time.
