Medications’ Side Effects

Author: Dr. Bruce Carleton, MedSchoolForParents.com Expert
Side effects are actually adverse drug reactions, the 5th leading cause of death in North America. These are reactions from a drug that could lead to harm in a child.
 
 
Fortunately most medications are safe; however, individual differences in responses can change how someone is affected.
 
Top Tips from Dr. Bruce Carleton, medschoolforparents.com Expert:

 

  1. Closely monitor a child after each dose of medication
  2. Observe for adverse reactions
  3. Report any adverse reactions to a physician or a nurse
