Over-the-Counter Pediatric Overdose

Medication Errors in Chicago

To be safe, it is wise to avoid giving your child pain or cold medications when he or she is under the age of two. In these two years, children are developing rapidly and it is very hard to determine whether or not your child will have an adverse reaction to the medicine. Additionally, according to the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), over-the-counter (OTC) medications do not help soothe the symptoms of children who are so young.

In fact, OTC medication can be harmful, even fatal, if an overdose occurs. Many of these medications contain ephedrine, which can cause serious side effects in babies.

Unfortunately, pharmacies, doctors and nurses frequently suggest that a child take these medications. Furthermore, when a parent is giving these medications to his or her child, several variables can lead to an overdose.
