“The FDA issued its strongest level of drug warnings Thursday concerning opioid pain-reliever use in children.

“Medicines containing codeine and another narcotic, tramadol, will now require a label indicating that they should not be used by children under 12. For children ages 12-18, and for breastfeeding mothers, the FDA said, the use of these medications should be limited.”
