In a blaze of scientific glory, the FDA announced yesterday that...
wait for it...
WE SHOULDN'T GIVE OVER THE COUNTER COLD MEDICINES TO CHILDREN UNDER 6!!!!!
Man. Am I glad they told me that. Because I never thought to, you know...
READ THE LABEL ON THE PACKAGE???
Our nation is getting dumber and dumber by the minute. How long has their been a statement on over-the-counter cold remedies that tells you not to give it to children under, not 6, but TWELVE? It clearly states that you should check with your doctor before giving, say, Dayquil, to a child under 12. All dosages on those medications are calculated for adults.
Granted there are some meds that are formulated for children. But even those have an age limitation on the label.
But we needed the FDA to waste who knows how many of our tax dollars (probably millions) to tell us not to do what the label on the box already tells us not to do.
TTFN, y'all. Oh...and be sure not to put your fingers in the rotating blade of your lawn mower, ok?
