Hello there.

I can understand your concern.
I wouldn't suggest you to take it since you are nursing your child. Instead take lozenges like Himalaya koflet-H thrice a day.
If it still persists, consult a physician in person for further evaluation and management.
Best regards.

Hello..... There is positive evidence of risk to a breastfed infant or to breastmilk production...You gargle with salt water twice daily... Avoid oily foods, if cough is very disturbing you have to take medications there is no other way.. Get your doctors suggestion before taking it...
