How can I help keep my kids safe and free from medication mistakes?

Children are more susceptible to medication errors than adults. Even the slightest increase in dose or the wrong medication can cause kids more serious injuries than adults. For this reason, it is vital for parents to be involved with their child’s prescribed medication by doing the following:

  • Be proactive. From the very beginning in the doctor’s office, ask the doctor what drugs he or she is prescribing to your child and why. Make sure you understand what the medication treats, the name of the drug, how often it should be administered to your child, how long your child should take the medication, and if it is the correct dose for your child’s weight.
  • Ask the pharmacist questions. When you pick up your child’s medication from the pharmacy, make sure the drug name matches the name the doctor gave you. If not, ask why. Don’t leave the pharmacy without having the pharmacist double check the medication he or she is dispensing to your child. Also, go over the important instructions with the pharmacist such as what things your child should avoid while on the medication and if the drug should be taken with food or water.
  • Store the medication properly. By storing your child’s prescription drugs out of sight and out of reach, your child is less likely to accidentally overdose on the medication.
  • Maintain a list or chart of how many times and when your child has taken his or her medicine. This way you will be able to keep track of when your child has taken his or her last dose. Therefore, you lessen the likelihood of your child overdosing or missing a dose.
  • Know the side effects of the medication your child is taking. By having this knowledge, you will be better prepared if your child starts experiencing side effects.
