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
