Welcome to

I’m sorry to hear about your problem.

Please provide some more information so that I can provide you with a better informed answer.

I have given her calpol
Customer: replied 13 days ago.
He breathing has slowing down since she fell asleep
Expert:  Dr.M.D.Mazumdar replied 13 days ago.

She should settle down after taking the Calpol. The Calpol will help decrease the inflammation in the respiratory tract and help her breathe easier.

Please wait and watch - her breathing should normalize in the next 2 hours.

I hope this helps.

Let me know if you need more information.

Customer: replied 13 days ago.
Ok thank you. ***** take her to a doctor at some point for this information or it goes away naturally?
Expert:  Dr.M.D.Mazumdar replied 13 days ago.

It should go down naturally but please take her to the ER if she continues to breathe rapidly after 2 hours of taking the Calpol.
