OTC cough and cold products for young children
New label changes will have parents asking for advice about OTC cough and cold products for young children.
Last year, manufacturers took INFANT cough and cold products off the market. Now the labels on CHILDREN'S products will say don't use them in children under age 4. Some will also caution about use in children under 6.
This is due to serious adverse events in young children using these products. But most of these problems come from dosing errors... misuse...and accidental ingestions.
