Colds, the Flu, ADD/ADHD & YOU
Can OTC cold & flu medicine can affect symptoms?
Although staying healthy as seasons change is important for everyone... it is especially true for those with ADD/ADHD. Did you know that adding a cold and flu remedy to the mix can potentially aggravate ADD/ADHD symptoms?
Most common cold medicines have some side effects on the central nervous system, which can be unpredictable. While some people may experience drowsiness, dizziness, insomnia, or upset stomach, others may experience a rapid heart beat or hyperactivity.
Over-the-counter cough and cold medicine can be dangerous if more than the recommended amount is used, if it is given too frequently, or if more than one cough and cold medicine containing the same active ingredient are being taken at the same time.
BaniFlu™ Homeopathic remedy temporarily protects against flu virus and germs and is safe for all ages.
FluGo™ Homeopathic remedy temporarily relieves symptoms of the flu or cold including cough, runny nose, fever, sore throat and fatigue.
Drug interactions between cough and cold medicines and any other medication that a child might be taking must always be considered, especially medications for ADD/ADHD, depression, or anxiety. Always consult your doctor or pharmacist.
While prevention is the best method - from boosting immunity by exercising, eating right, and controlling stress- the body is better able to fight the germs it encounters. However, if and when you or someone in your family gets sick, prevent further spreading of infection and viruses by washing hands often, disinfecting common surfaces, getting plenty of rest, and being considerate of others (including staying home from work or keeping children out of school until the contamination period passes).
