When it comes to medication, it’s important to remember that your child is not a ‘little adult’. They can be more sensitive and respond differently to medication than an adult. Talk to your community pharmacist, they are an easily accessible and helpful resource when you need to know how to administer the correct dose of medication; what medicines you can combine; how to store medicine safely; and how to get a reluctant child to take the medication they’ve been prescribed.
