  • PSA Reminder: Don’t give cold medicine to your young child

    I reported the FDA’s health advisory warning against giving cold and cough medicine to children under the age of two back when it was first issued. But apparently young children are still showing up in emergency rooms as a result of taking such meds. You should know that giving these meds to young children can cause life-threatening complications.

    If you’re concerned about your child’s cold or cough, the FDA recommends contacting your pediatrician or a pharmacist.
