Grey’s Anatomy star, Chandra Wilson, is educating parents on the safe use of children’s over-the-counter (OTC) oral cough and cold medicines.  In a PSA shot in October of last year, Chandra tells parents,


“As parents, we’re in charge of our children’s health, and as a mother of three, I take this responsibility very seriously,” said Chandra Wilson. “Many of us rely on OTC cough and cold medicines to help our children feel better when they’re sick. It is our job as parents to understand how to safely do so, and I am excited to be working on such an important effort promoting the safe and appropriate use of these medicines.”

Here are a few guidelines to follow:

  • Always follow the label exactly and use the measuring device that comes with the medicine
  • Do not give a medicine only intended for adults to a child
  • Do not use two medicines at the same time that contain the same ingredients
  • Prevent unsupervised ingestions by keeping all medicines out of the reach and sight of children
  • Do not use antihistamine products to make a child sleepy
  • Consult a physician or healthcare professional with questions.

In all, chandra has three kids:daughter Joy(born in 1994);daughter Serena (born in 1992); and son Michael (born October 31st, 2005)
