Yes, these medications may work, but you don't know if your child has exactly the same condition as any of the other children whose mothers are here. If your child is in distress, and it sounds as if she is, you need to go to the doctor anyway. The pediatric doctor is the one who best knows what medicine your little girl should be taking and who can take account of her unique circumstances and medical history.

Good luck.

i know that i was just trying to see if any other moms here used those medications on their children and if they worked than i would speak to her doctor about it.

You need to speak with your doctor regarding your child's symptoms and what might be the right medicine and, more importantly, dose. It is impossible to medicate your baby safely via advice on the internet.
