Well, this is a strong drug which is not usually given to a 4 year old.
I know my reply comes in a little late, but nonetheles, it is important that you know what signs you should have looked for:
Itching or hives, swelling in face or hands, swelling or tingling in the mouth or throat, tightness in chest, trouble breathing.
Blistering, peeling, red skin rash.
Extreme weakness, shallow breathing, fast or slow heartbeat, sweating, cold or clammy skin.
Nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, pain in the upper stomach.
Unusual bleeding or bruising.
Yellow skin or eyes, dark-colored urine or pale stools.
Dry mouth, constipation.
Muscle pain or weakness.
If any of these were seen or are still seen, consult your doctor.
