Tell me what do you think?

I think its crazy about all the recalls of the infants and chlidrens motrin and tylenol. I always use tylenol and motrin for my4 kids. I have been reading about the recalls I think its insane. I had to buy a generic brand for my 7 month old today.

  • I would rather they recall than to put my child in danger just because it's inconvienient. and there's nothing wrong with generic. they have to follow the same FDA guidelines as the name brand.

  • Well I know that! But still its been happening lately too much . of course I want to give what is safe to my children.

  • I usually use generic brand anyways, so it didnt effect me too much.

  • Sorry rissa. didn't mean to come across as attacking, it wasn't meant that way. I'm just glad that in this instance, the brand name and the generic aren't made by the same company or we'd all be SOL

  • I use equate ;] i'm glad it wasn't recalled.. I got scared when I saw they got recalled, but equate never showed up on the list ;]
    and jade, I agree if they were made by the same company, we'ld be sol. because everything would be recalled and the kids wouldn't have anything to help them.. unless we find some real home remedies.

  • For those of you using a generic be sure to research where they are made. Often the name brands make the store brands. If it says comparable to XXX on the label, there is good chance they were made by that company.

  • we have never purchased any thing like tylenol or motrin. we have one less thing to worry about.

  • i always use the generic kind there nothing wrong with it ! If anything the quality control might be higher because they have to try to keep up with the name brand stuff
