Luckily, Triaminic is finding ways to help. With their National Cold and Flu Tracker, where you can find out exactly where the flu is hitting the hardest, to their wonderful tips for fending off the flu. Not only that, but they also offer Sick Day Guidelines, Cold & Cough Guide, and an Allergy Guide.
Here are a few quick tips to help you prepare for the Cold & Flu Season:
1. Stock your medicine cabinet to prepare for when cold and flu symptoms appear.
2. Remind kids to avoid sharing food, drinks, and utensils.
3. Have your kids wash their hands with soap and water often.
Moms can trust Triaminic to help care for their children. They go out of their way to provide safe, effective relief of cold and flu symptoms. With their thin strips, we can ensure that our children are getting exactly the dose they need.
At Triaminic, we care about your child’s safety more than anything.
That’s why we wanted to provide you with the latest information on over-the-counter children’s cough and cold products. The makers of these medicines are voluntarily changing the product labeling to read “Do not use for children under age 4”. For products containing antihistamines, labeling will include the instructions “do not use for the purpose of making your child sleepy.” These labeling changes are being made in consultation with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and out of an abundance of caution to help avoid unintentional consumer misuse of these products.
Triaminic® products are safe and effective when used as directed and have been used to relieve children’s cough and cold symptoms for more than 50 years. We care about your children’s safety and want to assure you that you can continue to use Triaminic® products as directed for your children age 4 and older.
Our focus is on re-labeling our Triaminic® products to clearly reflect the new directions to help guide parents and caregivers on the safe and appropriate use of these products. In the meantime, it’s possible that some products on store shelves may still have dosing information for children under 4. During this transition period, please follow these dosing instructions:
Children under 4 years Do not use Children 4 – under 12 years Follow dosing instructions on package
Contact the poison control or medical center if you suspect your child has overdosed or taken medicine on his own.
If you have general questions about Triaminic® products, contact the Triaminic Clinic at 1-800-KIDS-987.
