As parents, you’re in charge of your children’s health. This is a big responsibility, but it doesn’t have to be a difficult one. Special attention should always be used when giving children any medicine. With so many over-the-counter (OTC) therapies, there are a lot of choices when it comes to your family’s health. Take the guessing out of giving your kids OTC medicines by learning how to read labels and how to let your children’s symptoms help you decide which medicine they need.
We’ve added a new feature to help people find information and tips about specific OTC medicines. Users can now search by treatment or active ingredient to find information on anything from allergy medicines to pain relievers and fever reducers. Explore the OTC Treatments and Active Ingredients tabs at the top of this page to learn more.
