Empowered Patient, a regular feature from CNN Medical News correspondent Elizabeth Cohen, helps put you in the driver's seat when it comes to health care.

ATLANTA, Georgia (CNN) -- On the popular parenting Web site UrbanBaby, a writer asks whether it's OK to give an 18-month-old "a tiny bit of Robitussin" for her "cold/cough and fever."

No flames please," the parent requests.

But flames she got.

"Idiot," one user writes.

"The answer is of course not," another writes. "Come on ... these cough syrups are totally ineffective in ameliorating the common cold and are harmful to your child."

Your kid has a cold -- what now? - CNN.com
