Cough and cold preparations such as Robitussin has not been found to be effective and safe in children under 2 years. Do not give your child this medication unless directed by your local healthcare provider. (Acetaminophen) Tylenol for headache and Diphenhydramine (Benadryl) for cough suppression and runny nose are okay for a child but give it to him/her only as prescribed by the physician, following the exact dosage instructions.
