eraser8: FTFA: The flu is affecting more people than anticipated this season, and many sufferers are scouting drugstore isles in search of remedies to help combat the illness.Drugstore isles? Isles? Really, CBS?
namegoeshere: Infant tylenol was what you did for fevery babies when my oldest was born. Now it's NEVER GIVE TO BABIES! BAD!Scary, that stuff.
dletter: Yeah, this comes up all the time, it is basically just the "just about all cold medicines have tylenol in it, so, if you take a bunch of stuff and don't realize that, you'll OD".
blatz514: Makes it tougher for meth heads to get Sudafed if they have to swim to get it.
From the article:
"Make sure that they aren't taking two different ones at the same time," Gardenier said. "If your child is small, you can't give a small child an adult dose. Always check with your pediatric provider."
lousyskater: My body decided to go hipster and get me Bronchitis instead of the Flu everyone else is getting.
Qwertyette: FTA: "Make sure that they aren't taking two different ones at the same time," Gardenier said. "If your child is small, you can't give a small child an adult dose. Always check with your pediatric provider." [...]First, always read and follow the label. Taking more than the recommended dose or using a different measuring system -- for example, a spoon instead of the provided measuring cup -- can be dangerous.Translation: Hurr durr derp dee durr. I'ma gonna measure my medicine by the bucketfull and give it to my newborn. durrrrrrr.
3rdtimearound: would be so much safer if they just replaced it with Oxycodone

utah dude: everything i need to know in life i learned from erowid + lycaeum ?thank goodness i'm a mormon, now.
Mr. Eugenides: 3rdtimearound: would be so much safer if they just replaced it with OxycodoneYour oxycodone probably has 300 to 500 mg of Tylenol in it already.
mgshamster: Here's the deal people. The therapeutic index (TI) of Tylenol is about 4. What this means is that the dose needed to produce a toxic effect (for Tylenol, it's the liver) is only 4 times greater than the dose needed for medicinal effects. That ratio is absolutely horrible. Normally, we want something that has a TI of 100 or more. The larger the TI, the better.Oh, and if you are ever thinking of committing suicide via Tylenol, don't. Liver failure is a very painful way to die, and it takes days. Also, if you're an alcoholic, I strongly recommend that you avoid Tylenol or any other product that has acetaminophen (aka paracetamol) in it./Toxicologist
MurphyMurphy: If it [Tylenol] is so dangerous, why is it on the shelf and consumed in the quantities that it is?
