Soolan is useful for treating children suffering from productive cough, nasal congestion, rhinorrhea and sneezing associated with allergies or the common cold.

- Children from 2 to 6 years of age: 5mL (1 teaspoonful) every 6 hours daily.

Hypersensitivity reactions including bronchospasm, angioedema, anaphylaxis, rashes and photosensitivity reactions have also been reported less frequently.
Very rarely, tinnitus, extrapyramidal effects, dizziness, confusion, depression, sleep disturbances, tremor, convulsions, palpitations, arrhythmias, hypotension, blood disorders, liver dysfunction and exfoliative dermatitis have been reported.

Treatment of overdosage should include gastric lavage or induction of emesis with syrup of ipecac, if it is within the first few hours after ingestion. Activated charcoal and cathartics may be administered to minimise absorption.
Enhanced sedative effects may result from concomitant usage of sedating antihistamine, däazepam, chloral hydrate or triclofos sodium with Soolan.
Increased risk of antimuscarinic effects may be expected upon concomitant administration of Soolan with antimuscarinics, while concomitant administration with amitriptyline, imipramine or nortriptyline may increase both sedative and antimuscarinic effects.
