According to a report by SafeKids.org, a child is rushed to the ER every 8 minutes due to medicine poisoning. And that’s unsurprising, because children are naturally curious, especially about anything mommy or daddy eats and drinks.
In the event that your child manages to ingest any quantity of your prescription medication, it’s important that you take immediate action.
Don’t panic and aggravate the situation further. Get your child to your nearest emergency room without any delay.
Determine which medicine your child has swallowed and take the bottle with you to the emergency room, so you can inform the ER doctor about the dosage and amount your child has swallowed. This will help the medical team to provide your child with the right solution as fast as possible.
Focus: Meds Pharmacy and Wellness understands that it’s difficult to keep an eye on an inquisitive youngster, that is why as a responsible Retail Pharmacy in Charleston, South Carolina, we advise parents to store medication out of sight and reach of young children.
Keep your medication in bottles with child-resistant caps, which you may purchase from your nearest Pharmacy.
