Nonprescription Cough And Cold Medicine Not for Kids Under Age 2

Filed January 18th, 2008 amy

Yesterday, the FDA informed consumers and healthcare professionals that the Agency has completed its review of information regarding the safety of over-the-counter (OTC) cough and cold medicines in children under 2 years of age. The FDA recommends that these drugs not be used to treat children in this age group because serious and potentially life-threatening side effects can occur.

FDA’s recommendation is based on both the review of the information the Agency received about serious side effects in children in the referenced age group and the discussion and recommendations made at the October 18 -19, 2007, public advisory committee meeting at which this issue was discussed. FDA has not completed its review of information about the safety of OTC cough and cold medicines in children 2 through 11 years of age.
