How old your kid should be before you dose them with OTC cold meds: according to the FDA

The FDA is recommending that you don't give cold meds to kids under 4 years of age. Pediatricians had suggested setting the limit at 6 years of age, but the FDA compromised with other interests (pharmaceuticals who hope to profit from treating two more years of snotty noses) to hatch the four year limit.
