I'm guessing you have already heard about this recall, but if not, McNeil recalled a whole lotta meds (yes, please hum 'whole lotta love' - led zeppelin while reading this entry). Infant meds and all. Supposedly no medical problems were reported from the recalled Tylenol, but it had more concentrated doses of active ingredient than intended.
Oh. Now I feel better? hmmm....
My other issue with Tylenol has to do with immunizations-- i.e. The Mind Battle of Last Night
Whereas prior to our new pedi visit, I was told by docs that T is safe to pair with shots, our new pedi issued me warning about controversial studies suggesting (a) T could make shots less effective (that the low grade fever is actually contributing to a stronger immunity later) or (b) possibly contribute to autism.
I had always been wary of the latter, but actually did not know about the former. I am so relieved to have found G a doctor who doesn't just dismiss these studies. I'm not saying I believe anything 100% to be true 100% of the time, but I think there's something to be said for weighing all of the evidence.
So last night, G's temp hits 100.4 and he turns into cranky city USA. My husband and I wearily took turns walking and rocking him, ever careful of his bruised
And when my Mom called us at 8:30 this morning to tell us about the recall, I found myself oddly smirking (in an evil Grinch sort of way) at that infant dropper bottle.
Now I just wonder how long this war will last.
