A spokeswoman for the Wyoming Poison Control Center is reminding people to carefully follow the instructions for using allergy medications.

Joan McVoy says that for many people, late summer and fall are the worst times of the year for allergies, including allergies to ragweed, various other plants and even some molds. But she says it’s important to carefully read the label on any medication you take, whether it’s prescription or over the counter.

She says one hazard for people taking more than one medication is that they may contain overlapping, ingredients, causing people to take more than the recommended dosage. She says it’s also important to know that some medications can impair your ability to drive safely or operate machinery.

And finally McVoy says it’s always important to keep all medications safely out of the reach of children.
