to the good tastes of flavors like cherry and grape, children like
taking these medication and think of them similar to sweets. This is
always one of the dubious issues with good tasting medications. We all
remember the terrible tasting medicine when we were kids. We would
never have actively pursued them and tried to drink it willingly. But
today they taste so good extreme caution should be exercised in both
storing and making sure the caps are child proof. "It's intended to slow
them down” Spiller said.But there is really no such thing as child
proof with a determined child and enough unsupervised time. That is why
in addition to the caps parents must store them in a safe place where
children cannot get access to them.
The syrups in question were manufactured before the end of December 2011, so most of the syrup probably have already been used.
