After a long night of watching my 4yr old coughing persistently to the point of vomit a few times, I was just looking online for the right cough mix to buy from the chemist this morning when I found an article on the ABC website about cough mixes.
It said that giving your child cough mix particularly ones with suppressants and antihistamines is harmful and according to the US Food and Drug Administration that they are " not only useless, but potentially dangerous" labeling them "placebo" medicines with dangerous ingredients.
I've always given my kids cough mixes for various coughs, chesty, dry etc when they couldn't shake it naturally or it escalated to scenarios like we had last night and I thought that was normal. So am I actually the minority? What are other hubbers thoughts on this?
