As we move into cough and flu season, this is the opportune time for you and your family to take stock of your medicine cabinet and keep tabs on it all season long. Safeguarding your medicine cabinet is only part of the equation. Also make sure to refresh your memory on the warning signs of cough medicine abuse. Above all, talk with your teens about the very serious risks of abusing cough medicine. Make sure they understand that medicine abuse is dangerous. Don't let this cold and flu season fly by without talking to your kids!
