About Over-the-counter cold and cough medications:
Over the last few months, the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) has released several statements regarding the safety of over-the-counter cold and cough medications. Their concern has focused on two areas – safety and efficacy. The conclusions of an expert panel convened by the FDA regarding over-the-counter cold and cough medications led the FDA to release guidelines on their use. As a result, we are now making the following recommendations for the treatment of colds and cough.
 
Under 2 years of age
  • No cold or cough medicines at all.
  • If you have been giving your child over-the-counter cold and cough medications you should stop immediately. These medications are not considered safe or effective.
  • We suggest using a cool mist humidifier, elevating the head of your child's bed, nasal saline and gentle suction as necessary, extra fluids, Tylenol or Motrin (for infants over 6 months of age only).
  •  
    2 to 6 years of age:
    • No cold medications are recommended.
    • Plain Mucinex or benadryl may be given.
    • Avoid the use of multi-symptom medications such as Tylenol Cold.
    • Use a marked medication cup, syringe or measuring spoon for every medication that you give to your child.
    • We suggest using a cool mist humidifier, elevating the head of your child's bed, nasal saline and gentle suction as necessary, extra fluids, and Tylenol or Motrin as needed.
     
    Over 6 years of age:
    • Benadryl, Delsym or Mucinex may be used for the cough.
    • We suggest using a cool mist humidifier, elevating the head of your child's bed, extra fluids and Tylenol or Motrin as needed.
    • If you should decide to use over-the-counter cold and cough preparations for a child over 6 years of age, be sure to measure the medication carefully, follow the dosing directions carefully, and do not give multiple medications.
