FDA Advisory Panel Votes to Limit Cough and Cold Medicines for Children Under the Age of 6
On Friday a Food and Drug Administration advisory panel by a 13-9 vote concluded that children ages 2 to 6 should not use cough and cold medicines. The panel concluded by a 21-1 vote that the medicines should not be taken by children under the age of 2. While the FDA typically follows advisory panel recommendations, it is not obligated to do so.
