The Doctors: Prevent Medication Poisoning In Children
More than 70,000 children are seen by emergency doctors because of unintentional medication poisoning. Some medications are a lot more dangerous than others, which is why The Doctors wanted to share which drugs can particularly put your children at risk. First was narcotic pain medications, which is the number one group cause of deaths from medications for kids under the age of five. If you think your child may have gotten access to your narcotics, pay attention to whether they become sleepy, lethargic, and experience slowed or even stopped breathing, Dr Darria Long Gillespie explained. Don’t wait too long to get help so call 9-1-1 if you think your child may have ingested narcotics.
