In brief: Define "safe"

This & similar medications have been used for years after approval of the FDA.
Many were prescription only until eventually moving to an over the counter status. In size appropriate doses they are considered safe.Studies over the last decade or so show little if any benefit to kids under 12. ER visits due to child directed overdoses led many to consider them more a threat than a benefit.
