Talking about Infant cold medicines pulled for overdose risk – Kids & Parenting – MSNBC.com

Quote: “Products aimed at children under the age of 2 are being removed from store shelves due to “rare instantances of misuse” that could lead to accidental overdose, a trade group that represents over-the-counter drug makers said.”

Another great achievement for the nanny state.  If you’re too stupid or lazy to follow the directions, you shouldn’t be allowed to have children.  Product directions should be on a written exam you have to pass to receive a breeding permit.  Now kids across the country will just have to suffer. When I was a kid,  there were no separate versions of over-the-counter medicines for children.  Parents had to estimate how much to give me based on height and weight.
