Welcome to this month’s edition of Healthy Homemakers!
Today, I’m posting a post on children’s medications that I wrote for Kitchen Stewardship back in August. I thought the post would be very applicable as flu season is now upon us!
Here’s an excerpt:
In November 2000, then 3-year-old Brianna Maya nearly died after her parents gave her children’s Motrin.
Her parents thought they were doing everything right, recounts an ABC news report. They followed their doctor’s suggestion to alternate between Tylenol and Motrin to help alleviate Brianna’s fever and cough.
But what the Mayas didn’t know was that the children’s medications they were giving their daughter would leave her with rare but life-threatening side effects.
And she would never be the same.
