Can children eat licorice tablets?

Question 1: Can an 11-month-old baby take licorice tablets? I took medicine today. I crushed loratadine and montelukast sodium chewable tablets and put them into amoxicillin and clavulanate potassium dry suspension and gave them to the baby together. Is it okay? Dr. Yuan Yunlong’s answer: First, it is not recommended to mix montelukast sodium chewable tablets with other drugs because this drug is easily oxidized; second, compound licorice tablets contain opium, which has a central inhibitory effect. Children\’s development in all aspects is not perfect. Therefore, it is generally not recommended for children under 3 years old to take compound licorice tablets.
