    MEDICATION SAFETY ALERT
    January 2010

    Safety Alert: Voluntary Recall

    McNeil Consumer Healthcare Voluntarily Recalls Certain Over-The-Counter (OTC) Products Manufactured in the U.S. and Other Countries.

    In consultation with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), McNeil Consumer Healthcare has voluntarily recalled certain lot numbers following an investigation of consumer reports of an unusual moldy, musty, or mildew-like odor. The odor was associated with temporary, non-serious gastrointestinal symptoms, including nausea, stomach pain, vomiting, and/or diarrhea.

    This recall expands an earlier recall of acetaminophen 100-count bottles with EZ open caps labeled Tylenol Arthritis that began in late 2009. Some of the medications included in this expanded recall are used in the treatment of pain, like:

    Children’s Motrin
    Children’s Meltaway Tylenol
    Benadryl
    Extra Strength Tylenol
    Regular Strength Tylenol
    Motrin IB
    Rolaids
    St. Joseph Aspirin
    Tylenol 8 hour
    Specific lot numbers affected by this recall can be found at MCNEIL PRODUCT RECALL. To find if you are in possession of any of the affected products, look on the side of the bottle label for the lot number.

    Individuals who may have ANY of these lots in their possession should:

    Stop taking the medication.
    Contact your healthcare provider if you have recently taken any of these medications and are experiencing symptoms as listed above or have medically-related questions.
    Report any adverse reactions to the FDA’s MedWatch Program by:
    o Fax: 1-800-FDA-0178,
    o Mail: MedWatch, FDA, 5600 Fishers Lane, Rockville, MD 20852-9787
    o Internet: MedWatch: The FDA Safety Information and Adverse Event Reporting Program (Medwatch website)
    Contact McNeil Consumer Healthcare for instructions if you wish to obtain replacement medications or a refund and also to receive information about safe disposal of these products.
    The public may direct questions to McNeil Consumer Healthcare at MCNEIL PRODUCT RECALL or 1-888-222-6036 (Monday-Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. Eastern time and Saturday-Sunday 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Eastern time).

    You are smart then.

    A kidney/liver doctor told me that he once had a pro football player patient who died from it. That was like twenty years ago.

    There are a lot of people who do with unlivable pain who have no type of life because of it. The standard thinking in the medical community is that it is better to suffer than to become addicted to pain killers such as morphine.

    Unlike Bill Clinton they don't feel your pain.

    I wanted to add a good link about pain. It is the American Pain Foundation. I've been a member for a couple of years.

    It's a non-profit organization and it's free to join. They survive on voluntary donations.
