Parents can use all the help they can get, and when kids get sick there is much to remember. Before you give your child over-the-counter (OTC) medicines, there are a few tips to keep in mind.
Pediatrician Ernest Leva, MD, and MedHelp join OTCsafety.org to provide parents with an informative video regarding children’s medicine safety. In the video above, Dr. Leva provides parents with tips on safe dosing, including reading the drug facts label, choosing medications that only treat a child’s specific symptoms and not giving medications for longer or more often than recommended.
