Could I give lortuss to my 6 month old baby she has a cough?

Do not give your baby anything without advice from the pediatrician.   Lortuss has several different formulations including some with the narcotic hydrocodone. The FDA has data that indicates there is more harm than good in giving any cough and cold medications to young children.
