Is Rhinos A Strong Medicine?
I went to the pharmacy last night,
Good evening, thanks for the question
Flu symptoms such as coughing and runny nose are very common diseases affecting children and adults. On average each child experiences 6 to 8 complaints of cough and cold each year. Cough colds are mostly caused by rhinoviruses,
adenovirus, enterovirus influenza virus, RSV, and coronavirus.
Over-the-counter medicines for coughs and colds in children are widely used by parents to deal with these complaints. Cough cold medicine circulating generally contains antihistamines, decongestants, antitussives, expectorants and antipyretics.
In your case, rhinos contains antihistamine, loratadine, which is useful for treating colds and sneezing, and decongestants, pseudoephedrine, which can help with nasal congestion. The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued a recommendation that over-the-counter cold cough medicines are not recommended for children younger than 2 years. That is because its use has not been tested for effectiveness in children. Also known to be quite a lot of causing adverse side effects.
If the child has a cough and cold, most of them are viral infections or colds that actually do not require special treatment. Children only need to rest and eat nutritiously to restore endurance. Complaints will completely disappear within a matter of a few days without treatment.
However, if parents are worried about the child's condition, you should check with a doctor. It is better not to give children drugs freely without doctor's recommendation and supervision because of the fear of wrong dosage, wrong indication, or wrong way of administration which can adversely affect the child.
That's all, hope you can help
