Did you know that there are 364 known drug interactions with Children’s Advil? These include drugs for asthma, epilepsy/seizures, topical antibiotics, such as bacitracin ointment for cuts and scrapes, laxatives, like Dulcolax, milk of magnesia, and other very common over the counter and prescription drugs.
We all want our children to be safe when they need medicine. It is extremely important to make sure that your child’s doctor and pharmacist know about every over-the-counter and prescription medication that your child takes regularly, has taken in the last 3 weeks, or takes as needed.
Children's bodies are more prone to drug interactions Children are much more prone to drug interactions than adults are because their bodies are smaller and cannot process the drugs out of their systems quickly the way a healthy adult might.
Also, drug reactions, sensitivities and allergic reactions frequently crop up in children ages 0-12 years old, because this is the time in their life when they are most likely to have their first exposure to drugs, and drugs used together, the way asthma drugs and Advil might be, for example. Carry a card or list with you at all times listing all the above information for your child, plus any allergies to medicine, food, preservatives or dyes, to help protect your child against allergic reactions, drug interactions, and drug overdoses.
