  • I didn't know there were bans on medications, which ones?

  • Its basically only cold medicine that has been banned for children. During a cold I use the Johnsons bath stuff, it helps clear out their airways. I also use a humidifier and the nasal drops to keep them from getting their nose stuffed.

  • There isn't a ban. It's that they are recommending that they not be given.
    I use Vicks vaporub, humidifier, saline spray, and the sudafed plug ins. If they are bad, I give them a little bit of cold medicine. I read the dosages and give them proper amounts. I am not worried.

  • They call it a ban here where I stay so I think I asked the question correctly.
