‘Baby cough medicine’: Why some doctors prescribe it
The baby cough medicines that some doctors are prescribing to children are making babies sicker than ever.
The FDA is warning doctors about them, and parents are saying it’s not the best medicine for them.
Here’s what you need to know.
‘Baby’s medicine’: A child’s medicine is not the same as the adult’s 1:10 Parents are calling the use of baby cough remedies a form of child abuse.
Some doctors are giving them to children for a variety of reasons.
Some of the medicine is being given to kids for allergies, asthma and other medical conditions.
Some kids take it for a cold.
Some parents say they take it to prevent pneumonia and other infections.
Some have used it to treat a rare but life-threatening allergic reaction.
And some parents are using it to help their newborns learn to walk.
The new drug: The FDA has banned some of the baby cough products and said they are unsafe to use for infants.
But some parents say their children are suffering because of it.
“I’m sure there’s a lot of doctors who have these medicines on hand and they’re not prescribing them to their babies,” said Jennifer Storrie, a pediatrician and president of the Children’s Medical Society.
I can’t imagine the pediatrician prescribing these to a child that’s just getting a little bit older.” “
Some parents are seeing them as a way to teach their children to use their hands.
I can’t imagine the pediatrician prescribing these to a child that’s just getting a little bit older.”
Parents are concerned that some of these products have no medical purpose and are being used to abuse babies.
“It’s all very disturbing, and there’s no reason for that,” Storries mother, Kristin, told CBS News.
“This is a dangerous drug that’s being used by a lot more people than parents understand and the FDA has been doing everything they can to get the information out there to warn parents and make sure kids don’t have any health issues.”
A new strain of the vaccine: The vaccine’s manufacturer, Sanofi Pasteur, says there is a strain of vaccine that is more effective than the older strain.
It’s not known if it’s safe or effective.
But the company says it will be available soon.
The American Academy of Pediatrics said it is urging parents to stop taking these drugs.
“The vaccine is not effective for all children,” said Dr. Michael Weiss, director of the Pediatric Vaccine Program at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.
“We recommend parents and caregivers to talk to their child’s doctor about any new vaccines that are on the market and avoid these drugs if they are prescribed to a newborn or toddler.”
The old medicine: The medicine was not approved by the FDA and is not safe for anyone under the age of 18.
Doctors are being told to stop prescribing it, but some parents who have given it say it has saved their children’s lives.
“A few years ago I gave a little boy who had a cough for about a month,” said Mary Kastner, a nurse at a hospital in Michigan.
“And I could see that he was starting to get better.
And then I noticed that the doctors were telling me that it was no longer effective and he had developed pneumonia.”
The vaccine is available for free online: The CDC says it is providing free vaccines to parents.
Some vaccines are free for families.
The company said that it will begin offering the vaccine free online later this year.
A mother who gave birth to her newborn in 2015 said the new vaccine saved her baby’s life.
“He was crying so much,” said Lisa Stoner, who gave her newborn a shot at about the same time.
“My baby was breathing so much better, and I could tell that my baby was getting better.
I could hear him breathing better.
My baby was in such good spirits.
He was feeling so much healthier.
He said, ‘Mom, Mom, I feel so much happier.
I love you so much, Mom.'”
Some are concerned the new drugs will lead to a new generation of dangerous and deadly allergies.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said it had received several reports of parents giving the new vaccines to their kids and reporting adverse reactions.
But a recent study by the New York State Department of Health found that none of the reports were related to the new medicines.
The study also found that most of the cases were associated with other drugs, including antihistamines and other cough medicines.
Parents say they’re concerned about the safety of the new versions of the vaccines.
“What I’m really concerned about is the potential for some of our children to develop new allergies,” Stoner said.
“If they’re on the new medication, I’m concerned.
And that’s why I’m saying no to the whole thing.”
The CDC is advising parents to get their children vaccinated before starting the new version of the drugs.
But it’s also telling parents to
