Medicines for Children

Our vision
 
That any parent, wherever they are, have information on their child’s medicines that they need and can trust.
 
Medicines information leaflets cover many of the medicines that are prescribed or recommended to children by health professionals. They answer your questions about how and when to give the medicine, what to do if you forget to give the medicine or give it twice, and any possible side-effects.
 
Read or watch short films about giving different medicines forms, including tablets, capsules, liquid medicine, injections, suppositories and enemas, eye drops/ointment and ear drops.
 
Medicines for Children is a partnership programme by the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health (RCPCH), Neonatal and Paediatric Pharmacists (NPPG) and WellChild. Find out more about what we do.
