 I just heard about this recall this morning,I've been BUSY. I've been giving my 8 month old this recalled Motrin for almost 2 weeks now,and she has been a total crabass.I mean crying all day long non stop,acting exhausted all the time,I've been losing my damn mind.I thought it was just the teething was really hurting her but now I'm a little worried. Has anyone else had any problems?

Nope, haven't had any.

The things I've read online though says their really hasn't been any "bad" effects but there are too much of certain ingredients that aren't even necessary.

I hope your daughter is cool!

I'm hoping all this crabbines was just because the motrin wasn't working and not because it was hurting her.

 What was recalled?

 I have heard that and that it may not have ENOUGH or TO MUCH of the active ingredient. So her extra crying may be because it is not helping. Try buying the generic Motrin or Tylenol. It has not been recalled.

My 9 year old took the Motrin for 3 days a couple weeks ago due to a bad ear infection.  It worked, and no side effects. It is one of the recalled bottles, but like I said, no problems from it.
