When the little boy was brought to the emergency room of a hospital where we usually go to for medical emergencies, he was given an injection for antihistamine to treat the allergies and viral infection he has. Before they injected it on him, I had to ask the resident pedia on duty at the ER if there would be any side effects to be concerned of. He actually got this shot about two years ago. But I had to make sure again and ask. It would be better safe than sorry.
If you don't know what the side effects are of the medications your are taking in and don't even ask, I don't want to end up like the people who had to file this Topamax lawsuit needing the help and expertise fo the O’Hanlon, McCollom & Demerath – Personal Injury Lawyers – 808 West Avenue, Austin, TX. 78701 – 512-494-9949. Those who took the medication intended for another symptom though not like my son, had side effects that affected their children. As a mother I don't want that to happen to us ever.
So moms should really try to ask first of any side effects though we may not be as well versed or familiar with those medical terms they may tell us at times but we just have to know we don't want any side effects from medications given to our kids.
