Children’s Medicines: What Every Parent, Grandparent, and Teacher Needs to Know (A Johns Hopkins Press Health Book) 1st Edition
[amazon template=iframe image2&asin=1421423758]
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.
