While it’s important to encourage our kids to explore and discover new things, when it comes to medication, we want to be careful to keep them safe

Put all medicines up and away and out of sight including your own.

Consider places where kids get into medicine.

Consider products you might not think about as medicines.

Use the dosing device that comes with the medicine.

Put the toll-free Poison Help Number into your home and cell phone: 1-800-222-1222

Medications are the leading cause of child poisoning.
