Message From Our Nurse

Some parents are not aware aspirin is not recommended for kids <15yrs- unless under a physician's advice. Aspirin use when a child has a virus greatly increases the risk of developing Reye Syndrome. The American Academy of Pediatrics has a great webpage and it is a reliable source, unlike some sites. If you go to the following link, there is an article about over the counter medication and children. It is good parent info.
