Default Where are Tylenol products ?

Where have all the Tylenol products gone ?

I keep a bottle of 500mg extra strength almost every room in the house.

The only thing I found on the shelf lately was Tylenol PM. That is OK once in a while, but not for all my uses.

Can find and use generic Acetaminophen, but like to switch off and use real Tylenol once in a while.

Googled Tylenol and found a site that said recall due to smell, but no time table to get things back on the shelf...............

What's up ???????????

Same thing with Rolaids.
Pulled for a recall and I haven't seen them in since.
Same company same problem.
Putting on my tin foil hat now.
I have more Tylenol than I can ever use.
I get it from the hospital pharmacy at the hospitals cost.
$7 for 1000.
Same price for ibuprofen.

Pharmacist told me that the Tylenol plant was storing their products on molded pallets, there by contaminating their products.
Place had not been 'inspected' in YEARS, if ever.
Someone was paying someone under the table to 'file that paperwork' without ever entering the plant.

http://www.wibw.com/nationalnews/hea.../93808594.html

They shut it down. Locks on the door and the whole 9.
Place COVERED in black mold.

Thank goodness I have always used the generic. I am totally allergic to mold, and that could have really jacked me up!!

Other than my prescribed stuff I like Aleve pretty well.

It got recalled again!!?? Last year they had some bacteria problem and yanked most of their line. Sounds like they didn't fix the issues.

I am a personal fan of Naproxen. But lately for localized pain, Voltaren has really impressed me.

Tylenol PM knocks me out cold. Even if I take it the night before I wake up all foggy and dopey. Not a fan.

I don't understand why people want to take acetaminophen and diphenhydramine together. Marketing? Just pop a Benadryl. It'll save you a few $ and your liver.

I hate acetaminophen, too, but my doc said that's my only recourse for routine pain relief as I only have one kidney . NOT a fan of PM either; DH is forbidden to take it, as it gives him the worst hangover ever.

As I understand it, it is really bad if you like a cocktail most evenings. Don't combine the two.

I hadn't noticed it was missing but since I only use a generic pain killer every one in a while it doesn't really concern me. I just pick up a bottle of the Walmart brand stuff every once in a while to keep on hand.

I haven't noticed but then again I never take it or anything else but aspirin - I obviously have a cast iron stomach but everything else messes with my intestines and colon and I tend to have a lot of bathroom moments.
