OTC cough and cold products for young children

New label changes will have parents asking for advice about OTC cough and cold products for young children.

Last year, manufacturers took INFANT cough and cold products off the market. Now labels on CHILDREN'S products will say not to use them in children under age 4. Some will also caution about use in children under 6.

This is due to serious adverse events in young children with these products.  But most problems come from dosing errors...misuse...and accidental ingestions.
