Safe Dosing for Children’s Medicines.

There has been a recent increase in children hurt by incorrect medicine dosage. Not all kitchen spoons are the same size, so it is vital to use the included spoon, plastic cup or syringe to administer the dosage, especially with younger children. Many medications now come with flow restrictors, which successfully slow down the flow, helping measure out the correct dosage.

67% of ER visits for medicine poisoning are related to medicine being left within a child’s reach, on the counter, dresser, ground or purse, so be sure to put away any medicine after use and store it safely.
