Two of the largest pharmaceutical companies are now limiting purchases of children’s pain relief medications. 
The announcement comes as many Americans are struggling to track down the over-the-counter medication.
Walgreens will only allow six over the counter purchases.
Meanwhile, CVS will allow customers to buy two pain relief products  - either online or in person.
Health experts say it has become increasingly difficult to find the medication due to both supply-chain issues and what experts are calling a "tripledemic" of flu, RSV and COVID-19 cases.
