Health Tip: Using Meds for Kids

Make sure you know possible side effects

(HealthDay News) -- Before you give your child any medication -- including one that's over-the-counter -- talk to the doctor, nurse or pharmacist who recommended it.

The American Academy of Family Physicians suggests you ask:

  • Why the medication is recommended, and what impact it might have on your child's symptoms.
  • How much you should give, and how often.
  • If there are any potential side effects.
  • Any activities or foods that your child should avoid while taking the drug.
