Interesting Fact | Antihistamines and Kids

One of our top 5 substances involving children under the age of 5 for April includes antihistamines. It's allergy season and while trying to control the annoying symptoms that plague allergy sufferers, remember to practice child safety precautions when using medications.

  • Keep medicines and vitamins in bottles with child-safety caps (child-resistant packaging). Remember, child-safety caps are not child proof! Make sure the safety caps are on tight at all times.

  • Store medicine and vitamins in locked cabinets out of the reach and sight of children.

  • After you use a medicine, place the safety cap back onto the bottle tightly. Return the bottle to a locked cabinet.

  • If you have outdated (expired) medications, contact us at 1.800.222.1222 on information on the proper way to dispose of these medications.
