    I think this is an excellent chart for parents. I have only one suggestion. Take time to talk to your pharmacist when he/she is not too busy. They have a lot more training in drugs and keep abreast because of their profession. They can also advise when you are in doubt. They do not replace a doctor but can advise because of their knowledge….

    • momvstheboys says:

      So true Elva. My last doctor used to call the pharmacist all the time to double check on things or ask a question when she was giving me a prescription.
