There appear to be numerous anecdotal claims from parents on Amazon (and my wife's Facebook) of this product being the cough and cold cure their children needed;
However, I have read that Hyland's teething tablets were recalled after a number of consumers' reported babies suffering symptoms consistent with Belladonna poisoning.
Does their cough and cold medicine suffer from similar deficiencies or do the 'active ingredients' fall under the same category as those discussed this question? Or is there evidence to believe that this medicine may after all be effective?
As a side question, is there a name for the psychological phenomenon where parents believe that alternative medicines and contraptions (like amber bead necklaces) actually work, despite the scientific evidence (or lack there of)? I try so hard to fight anecdotal evidence with hard science, but it seems like a lot of parents rely heavily on anecdotal evidence (because all the moms/parents they talk to that tried it say it worked great).
