520    "Most parents have worried about the side effects and 
       possible long-term consequences of administering a 
       particular medication to their child. The medication may 
       be available over-the-counter, like cough syrup, or it may
       be prescribed by a doctor, like an antibiotic. Parents 
       want to know: Is the medication safe? Is it effective? 
       Will it help my child? A pediatric pharmacist for nearly 
       thirty years, Edward A. Bell has spent his career 
       listening carefully to parents’ concerns. In Children’s 
       Medicines, Bell draws on the latest scientific information,
       coupled with his experience in hospital and clinic 
       settings, as a university professor, and as a parent, to 
       answer questions about whether, when, and what medications
       to give to infants, children, and teenagers. Bell touches 
       on practical issues of medication administration and 
       explores areas of particular concern for parents. Inside 
       the book, readers will find information to help parents 
       weigh the benefits and risks of medicines; an explanation 
       of why some adult medications are not safe for children; 
       descriptions of medicine for treating fever and common 
       illnesses; practical tips on measuring, flavoring, and 
       administering medicines; directions for giving medicine in
       the mouth, the nose, the ear, and the eye; advice for 
       keeping children of any age safe around medications; facts
       about vaccinations: how they work, which ones are 
       recommended, and their safety; a guide to the FDA’s 
       approval process for use of medicines by children; 
       information about drug pricing, expiration dates, and 
       storing medicine at home; a chapter on ADHD and the 
       treatment of adolescent depression that takes into account
       the long-term side effects of antidepressants; details 
       about the use of herbal and complementary therapies, 
       including probiotics and vitamins; a discussion of over-
       the-counter cough/cold products; information on which 
       websites to use for accurate medical and drug information.
       Full of information helpful to parents, grandparents, and 
       others who provide care for children, Children’s Medicines
       is a reliable and insightful guide to how drugs for 
       children of all ages are prescribed and used."--Publisher
