Preventive Medications

Preventive medications provide primary prevention of disease to average-risk or high-risk children. Preventive medications in childhood include fluoride for children with inadequately fluoridated drinking water and iron supplementation between ages 6 and 12 months for infants at high risk for iron deficiency anemia. Some preventive medications may be used in children with chronic diseases to prevent disease symptoms, progression, or complications; however, these medications may be considered disease management (i.e., tertiary prevention) rather than primary or secondary prevention.
