Parents Guide to Children and Multiple Medications


Is Your Child on Too Many Meds?

If you are worried that your child is on too many different medications, or your child is not doing well on them, Dr. Steingard recommends that your first step should be to go to your prescribing doctor with your concerns. Tell your doctor that you’d like to get a second opinion. It’s your right, and it’s common in other areas of medicine. A good doctor will be supportive, and may be able to help you find another clinician to review your child’s case.
