Health Tip: OTC Medications for Children

Talk with the pediatrician before your child's first dose

(HealthDay News) -- Before you give your child any over-the-counter medication, it's important to discuss the medication and proper dosing with the pediatrician.

The American Academy of Family Physicians offers these talking points:

  • How will this medication help my child?
  • What is the appropriate dosage?
  • Are there any potential side effects of this medication?
  • Are there any restrictions on activities or foods while my child takes this medication?
