Children grab anything they can see, which can rarely lead to fatal effects. Although a short list, certain drugs can cause death in a child upon consumption of just one pill.
Top Tips from Dr. Gideon Koren, medschoolforparents.com expert:
- You must know what is around a child. What medications do grandparents, uncles, cousin etc. use?
- Keep all mediations locked up and out of the reach of children
- Know that one pill can kill a child. Here are a few examples:
Digoxin (cardiac drug)
Chloroquine (malaria drug)
