Prevent medication mistakes

Pediatrician appointments can be overwhelming, as you try to keep your child content, sign paperwork and listen to the doctor. But medication errors can happen if you and the pediatrician don’t communicate clearly. To help prevent errors, make sure that your child’s doctors know about every medicine that’s being taken and about any allergies. Ask your pharmacist for the best way to measure liquid medicine and for information about potential side effects.
