Cough syrup abuse by 40 percent of parents

Children can get five to 10 colds each year, so it's not surprising that adults often turn to over-the-counter cough and cold medicines to relieve their little ones' symptoms. But a new University of Michigan poll shows that many are giving young kids medicines that they should not use. More than 40 percent of parents reported giving their children under age 4 cough medicine or multi-symptom cough and cold medicine, according to the latest University of Michigan C.S. Mott Children's Hospital National Poll on Children's Health. Twenty-five percent gave those children decongestants. 
 In 2008, the federal Food and Drug Administration issued an advisory that these over-the-counter medicines not be used in infants and children under age 2. They have not been proven effective for young children and may cause serious side effects, says Matthew M. Davis, M.D., M.A.P.P., director of the C.S. Mott Children's Hospital National Poll on Children's Health. In response to the FDA, manufacturers of over-the-counter cough and cold products changed their labels back in 2008, to state that the medicines should not be used for children under 4 years old. "These products don't reduce the time the infection will lasts and misuse could lead to serious harm," says Davis. "What can be confusing, however, is that often these products are labeled prominently as 'children's' medications.

Bombay High Court (HC) directed the state government Monday to allow homoeopaths to practise allopathy. In a February 4, 2002, circular, the state had asked doctors holding licences under Mumbai Homoeopathic Practitioners Act, 1959, to restrict practice to homeopathy. 
 LCEH (licentiate of the court of examiners in homeopathy) Doctors Association challenged the circular in November 2010, asking the government and the medical education department to consider eligibility of homoeopaths to practice allopathy. On March 31, 2011, secretary, medical education and medical drugs department, rejected its application. The association then moved HC. It said the four-year LCEH course that included study of allopathy with homoeopathy was started in Maharashtra in 1951 and continued till 1982.
