For Healthcare Providers

Healthcare providers are uniquely positioned to educate parents about teen over-the-counter (OTC) cough medicine abuse. Providing a cautionary mention during a patients’ appointments or offering brochures and materials are easy ways to inform patients about this issue. Additionally, providers can encourage them to talk to their teens and monitor their household medicine supply.
