Children’s medicine

Every adult giving a child a particular drug wants to be absolutely sure that the drug not only help, but will not cause any harm to the favorite child. That is why the appointment of agents to be competent, balanced and particularly valid, and the use – clear and accurate.

According to statistics, almost half of pediatric drugs have not passed the appropriate medical tests on children, so do not take into account the physiological characteristics of the growing organism.

Meanwhile, children lower metabolic rate than in adults and the liver and kidneys (especially in infants) are under development, however drug excreted faster. How to use tools, the effectiveness of which doctors doubt yourself? In addition, even if the drug is considered safe, when calculating the required therapeutic dose is rarely taken into account not only the age, but also the weight of the child, and it’s also very important indicators.

It turns out that for watchful parents all have to watch yourself having received the recommendation of the pediatrician to check the list of drugs, and only then make a responsible decision – to give it to the child or not.

However, in Russia there are already a number of drugs that adults unconditionally trust. And here the parents’ opinion is based on some characteristics of what must necessarily possess the means used for the treatment of children.

Only after reviewing all available materials – instructions for use, manuals, online resources, etc., – an opinion is finally formed. As practice shows, adults often refuse to carry out the instructions of doctors.

On that same pay attention to the parents? Firstly, is there any information on the clinical trials conducted or not. Secondly, the interests of the drug. The logic is very simple: the components of the means which are of vegetable origin, natural cause far greater confidence. Thirdly, another important point – at what age it is possible to use the drug for the treatment of the child.

For example, drops Otrivin “moisturizing formula” designed to eliminate runny nose and nasal congestion, applicable even in the smallest children – from one month. This is possible thanks to the fact that the drug gently envelops the delicate mucous membrane of the nose, soften it with moisturizing ingredients and prevents it from drying out.

At the same time a few minutes after taking the drops give kids an easy and free breathing, and this effect persists after a further 10-12 hours. Such characteristics, confirmed by appropriate clinical trials, do means the holder of the highest degree of security that is so important when choosing a medication for the treatment of children.
