Most decongestants are not meant for children, therefore parents must conduct research prior to giving their child any sort of decongestant medication.

Brooksville, Florida — August 16, 2012

Decongestants can help to relieve symptoms of a runny nose or stuffy nose. They include ingredients like Pseudoephedrine and Phenylephrine. Although often helpful, decongestants can make some children hyperactive or irritable.

Most people can use decongestant medications, although they may not be suitable for everyone. Certain decongestants are not recommended for children under 12 years of age unless advised by their doctor.

The FDA has issued a public health advisory about children's cold medicines saying that "questions have been raised about the safety of these products and whether the benefits justify any potential risks from the use of these products in children, especially in children under two years of age."

Keep in mind that according to the FDA, most problems with cold medicines occur when more than the recommended amount is used, or if the medication is given too frequently. And so when it comes to childrens decongestants, parents should turn to a pharmaceutical company that manufactures appropriate medication for children and offers ample information regarding the product.

Unlike most pharmaceutical companies, MCR American Pharmaceuticals manufactures a medication group called Maxiphen that is ideal for children. MCR American Pharmaceuticals is a specialty pharmaceutical company that focuses on the marketing, development, sales and distribution of the highest quality medications.

"Childrens decongestants are not so common," said owner of MCR American Pharmaceuticals, David Daniel Ambrose. "But our Maxiphen medication group is tailored specifically for children."

The Maxiphen product family includes Maxiphen and Maxiphen DM. MCR American Pharmaceuticals explains that Maxiphen is an expectorant and decongestant that contains Phenylephrine and Guaifenesin.

Maxiphen helps loosen mucus in the lungs, throat and bronchi. Furthermore, it helps relieve a stopped-up (stuffy) nose caused by a cold virus or the flu (influenza), sinusitis, or allergies. Maxiphen works to de-clog the nose and help customers breath better.

MCR American Pharmaceuticals explains the benefits to such medication is the low dose of Pseudoephedrine and Guaifenesin. The low dosage of such ingredients ensures the medication is suitable for young ages, specifically ages six and older, and is safe to consume.

The Maxiphen product family also includes Maxiphen DM. MCR American Pharmaceuticals explains that Maxiphen DM is an expectorant, decongestant, and suppressant that contains Pseudoephedrine, Guaifenesin, and Dextromethorphan and is strong enough to cure post nasal drip cough.
