FDA Experts Seek to Ban Multi-Symptom Cold Medicines for Children Under 6

Under increasing pressure and mounting evidence, safety experts for the FDA have urged the governmental agency to ban multi symptom cold medicines for children under 6 years of age. The call comes in the midst of evidence that such medicines are ineffective in alleviating the symptoms of colds and may be dangerous to children, especially if abused or administered in too large or strong a dosage. Of course, such large pharmaceutical companies who have a large financial stake in such products, have opposed the move.
