When children accidentally swallow prescription drugs, more than half the time it’s because an adult has removed the medication from child-safe packaging, according to a CDC study in the Journal of Pediatrics. The 1970 passage of the Poison Prevention Packaging Act, which required child-safe packaging for most prescription medications, helped reduce unintentional child poisonings, the authors wrote. But as medication use increased in the 2000s, so did children’s exposures to those drugs. To learn more about how children are getting access to medications, the study’s authors surveyed 4496 adults who called any of 5 US poison centers about an accidental exposure involving a child 5 years or younger between February and September 2017. About half of the exposures to attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder medication and 42.6% of cases involving opioids occurred when loose pills were left lying out, the study showed. In about 30% to 40% of children’s exposures to anticonvulsants, hypoglycemics, or cardiovascular/antithrombotic agents, the medication had been transferred to another container. About half of the prescription drug exposures involved a drug intended for a parent, while 30.7% involved drugs intended for a grandparent.
