Pharmaceutical Technology wants to know your opinion. To participate, please answer the following question:
The US Food and Drug Administration’s Nonprescription Drugs Advisory Committee and Pediatric Advisory Committee recently recommended that over-the-counter cough and cold medications not be given to children under age 6 based on their conclusion that the drugs have not been proven effective according to current research and there is a risk of adverse effects. The committees further recommended that dosing devices be required and standardized using volume measurements for liquid formulations.
Do you agree with the committees that there should be standardized dosing devices for all OTC children’s medications?
