Keep Your Radar Up for Kids Getting Risky Meds

You'll hear about the new "KIDs List" of Key potentially Inappropriate Drugs in pediatrics...from the U.S. Pediatric Pharmacy Association.

Think of these guidelines as similar to the Beers Criteria of potentially inappropriate meds in the elderly. The KIDs List includes certain Rx or OTC meds that may be risky in those under 18.

For example, codeine or tramadol should usually be avoided in kids...since they can increase risk of breathing issues and death.
