  • I have no heard anything. If there is and the ban specificly says tylenol, then it's the name brand only, not acetominophine

  • I went to the store a week or so ago to get the infant's Tylenol for my son and had to get Triaminic because the shelves were completely cleared of all of the infant's and children's tylenol. Yesterday I went to get some Tylenol for myself and it was the same with all of the Tylenol products so I just got the store brand. I was just wondering. Thanks!

  • Last year there was a recall on children's Tylenol because they were putting higher doses in it then it said on the box


    this year there are multiple tylenol recalls
