FDA says half of medications don’t include children’s dosage or safety labels

Comments (0)

Children's dosage errors at pharmacyA new study by the Food and Drug Administration found that most medications have proper dosage information and safety labels appropriate for adults, but half of these drug labels do not list safety or dosage information for children.

FDA researchers analyzed 560 different medication labels on drugs ranging from allergy medications to high blood pressure medications. The researchers found that 54% of labels had no useful pediatric information.

Safety and dosage information for less-common pediatric conditions
Most pharmaceutical manufacturers perform safety and dosage research on adults and as a result the effects on children for certain types of medicines are unknown. The study claims that over half of drugs made with new ingredients approved between 2002 and 2008 did not have safety and dosing information for children.

The medicines that do have labels are the most common ones including asthma medications or vaccines. Certain medical conditions that are not common in children, like cancer or arthritis, are often treated with drugs that have not undergone stringent testing for dosage or safety.

The Danger of Children’s Dosage Errors
Age and weight play a vital role for doctors and pharmacies to determine the correct dose of medication for your child. A doctor may forget to calculate a children’s dose instead of an adult dose in the prescription, or a pharmacist may fail to follow dosage information for children’s prescriptions. 

Children’s bodies are not developed like an adult’s and they are more susceptible to great harm because of a prescription error or children’s dosage error.
