cold medicine for under 6y, homeopathic waste of money?
They do not have one medicine to help both Nasal congestion and coughing.
they have one for each.
Since my 5yr has both conditions, I decided to look for one medication for both symptoms.
I went to SDM and I grabbed http://kids0-9.ca/cough_cold_medicine.html went to pharmacist to ask if it's ok to use this with Advil, since it already has ingredient for fever.
His first word was don't buy anything.
Reason is, it's homeopathic medicine which has no scientifically proven medical ingredients.
He said, it's close to sugar pill, placebo.
under 6 years old, there is no medicine for common cold.
I thought they do contain medical ingredients, even written on the boxes.
it's true, i have never really noticed any drastic improvements after giving these to my kid but I could say the same thing for any adult cold medications.
What are you thoughts?
I'll be sure to check with her doctor next time.
