Some advice on keeping medicines in the home
(405) Wednesday, March 7, 2018
  • Keep all medicines in containers with child-resistant caps/lids - remember that "child-resistant" does not mean "child-proof". Child-resistant lids are designed to slow children down when they try to open a container, giving you the chance to notice what is happening and take action.
  • Keep medicines and chemicals locked out of reach and sight of children.
  • Remember, this includes items herbal, iron and vitamin tablets or substances - iron is very dangerous, especially to children, if taken in a high dose.
  • Read directions for use carefully before taking or giving medicine, vitamins etc.  Talk with your GP or pharmacist if you have any questions.
  • Children like to copy adults - try to take your medicine when your young child is not watching you.
  • When visiting another home, take a few minutes to check for medicines or cleaning products lying around places your child is likely to explore - like grandparents' bedside lockers
  • Return any old or unused medication to your pharmacist.
  • Don’t refer to medicines or vitamins as sweets.
