Protecting the Gift Excerpt

"Open wide ... here comes the choo-choo."

When it comes to giving children medicine, a little imagination never hurts.

But what's more important is vigilance: giving the medicine at the right time at the right dose, avoiding interactions between drugs, watching out for tampering, and asking your child's doctor or the pharmacist about any concerns you may have.

Whether it's a prescription or over-the-counter (OTC) drug, dispensing medicine properly to children is important. Given incorrectly, drugs may be ineffective or harmful.
