Statement from the Consumer Healthcare Products Association on Today's Joint FDA Advisory Committee Recommendations Regarding Pediatric Over-the-Counter Cough and Cold Medicines

The committee's split majority vote on this matter clearly did not reflect a consensus of opinion, and we hope the FDA will weigh this recommendation with great caution. Adoption of this recommendation would leave parents with no over-the-counter medicinal relief when their children are suffering from cold symptoms.

"Over-the-counter cough and cold medicines with multiple ingredients play an important role in relieving suffering from the common cold. It is easier and more practical to treat a child with a multiple symptom relief product. And the data presented at the advisory committee meeting show that multiple-ingredi
