Children’s Cold Medicine

Manufacturers have removed over-the-counter cough and cold medications in response to over 50 deaths, almost all of which believed to have been caused by overdoses. The medications were designed for children two and younger, all had warnings against overdose, but the warnings don’t seem to have been effective.

CNN provides a List of withdrawn infant cold medicines.

It has been reported for some time that these medications have the most minimal of effectiveness, but people insist on taking pills if they don’t feel 100%.

Homeopathy may be safer. Effectiveness not guaranteed.

A vaporizer and kleenex is the basic recommendation, but chicken soup couldn’t hurt.
