My son rarely gets sick, but it’s a chore to get him to take any medicine when he does. He hates to take liquid medicine and isn’t quite old enough to swallow pills. So, I’m very thankful to have Triaminic Thin Strips during cold season.
Triaminic Thin Strips are individually packaged strips that dissolve when placed on your child’s tongue. They relieve nasal and sinus congestion, as well as minor coughs. They come in both daytime and nighttime formulas.
I’ve tried the Triaminic Thin Strips myself during a spell when our whole house ended up sick and nobody felt like going out for some adult cold medicine. The strips dissolve quickly and taste fairly pleasant, although they don’t provide as much relief for an adult because they’re designed for kids 12 and under. I can easily see why picky kids would prefer them over the other medications that are available.
Another thing I really like about Triaminic Thin Strips is that I can be confident my son is getting the right dosage of medicine. Liquid medicines can be hard to measure and they always seem to spill before the full dose is administered. The convenience of Triaminic Thin Strips can’t be beat, especially when grandma or the babysitter is taking care of your sick child.
Triaminic Thin Strips cost a bit more than regular liquid medicines for children, but you can bring the cost in line by shopping sales and using coupons. The medicine keeps for several months, so don’t be afraid to buy extras if you hit a great sale.
Have you tried Triaminic Thin Strips with your children? If so, please share your thoughts!
