Children's Cough Medicine And Lozenges

Cough drops and lozenges are more than just medicine. Cough syrups, liquid and tablet vitamins and antibiotic syrups can contain anywhere from 10-75% sugar - especially children's formulas.

Throat lozenges and cough drops range from 50 to nearly 75% sugar. That's not a big deal if you only use them once in a while. But that much sugar can cause serious decay if you take these medicines on a regular basis. That's why children who use syrups and lozenges over long periods of time have a much higher incidence of decay.

The good news more and more medicines are made without sugar. Check the label and make sure you're not getting more than you bargained for. If you're not sure, ask your pharmacist for help.
