Top 3 Medications That Are Fatal to Children

Top 3 Medications That Are Fatal to Children

According to a report from SafeKids.org, a child is rushed to the ER due to medicine poisoning every 8 minutes.

As a retail pharmacy in Union City, New Jersey, we at West Lake Pharmacy see it as our responsibility to remind parents to practice proper medicine storage to prevent accidents like medication poisoning from happening to your child.

Any medicine taken under the wrong circumstances can be poisonous to a small child. And our pharmacy staff recommend that you keep these 3 medications away from your kids.

  1. Heart Medication

    If taken by accident, it can cause your child’s heart rate and blood pressure to drop to a dangerously low level, which can result in your child going into shock that will eventually lead to cardiac arrest.

  2. Pain Relievers

    A survey from 2010 showed that 31% of deaths caused by medicine poisoning in children younger than 5 years old were caused by OTC and prescription medication.

  3. Antidepressants

    While these may be helpful for the prescription owner, it’s harmful to children who ingest them, earning the title of “second-highest cause of poisoning in children under 6”.

Be safe with your medication. Always consider the people around you.

On the other hand, if you’re having a difficult time getting your child to take their medicine, our compounding pharmacy in New Jersey can help you out!
