Cold Meds For Kids - Part 2

Looks like the pharmaceutical industry is coming out with some strong recommendations. Read this MSNBC news article, "Drug companies: No cold meds for kids under 4."

They recommend . . .

  • Parents should never:
    Give adult medicines to a child.
    Give two or more medicines with the same ingredients at the same time.
    Give antihistamines to make a child sleepy.
  • Parents should:
    Give the exact recommended dose, using the measuring device that comes with the medicine.
    Keep OTC medicines out of sight and out of reach.
    Consult their doctor if they have any questions.

These suggestions seem pretty reasonable, all things considered.
