This is disgusting!!! I just called yesterday and found out TWO bottles that we have already been using were on their recall list.(Children's Tylenol & Children's Motrin)

They asked if I would like a coupon for more of their lousy products or a refund. I told them this was the 2nd time I was throwing out the Children's Tylenol -and why on earth would I want to ever use it again after 2 re-calls!

It's also very shocking that very few doctors will tell their patients that acetaminophen can be very toxic to the liver, and even to the ears.

Ibuprofen is also very hard on the kidneys and NSAIDS can cause stomach bleeding (or worse). There are safer options but they don't bring in billions of dollars in profits for large corporations.

Mostly because the very companies that make this stuff sponsor news broadcasts and support newspaper and magazines with advertising, you don't see a lot of investigative journalism about this very shocking situation of toxicity. And some of this damage can be permanent.

===========================

Nearly any symptom on this list can be caused by toxins. From infection, from toxic medicines. And liver damage also affects the ears. The ear system is the very first body system to detect toxins. When toxins are detected, something goes kaput in the ears to warn us. Sometimes, that effect can be reversed when the cause is addressed; sometimes, it is permanent damage.

Just look at how many functions of daily living are affected if the ears are exposed to damage from toxins, noise, etc.:

FDA Group Issues Cautions on Acetaminophen

FDA Weighs Reduction of Painkiller ODs

By AP / MATTHEW PERRONE

(WASHINGTON) --

Tylenol, Excedrin, NyQuil. These household brands and others have come to symbolize safe, convenient relief from the aches and pains of everyday life. But this week the Food and Drug Administration is focusing on a seldom-discussed side effect of the medications: severe liver damage. . . .

- Full article at the link above.

====================

Tylenol (Acetaminophen) Liver Damage

Excerpt:

. . . In a study of 145 healthy subjects who were randomized to receive placebo or 4 grams of Tylenol daily for two weeks,

subjects in the placebo group experienced no elevations of ALT, a liver enzyme, but 33%-44% of the subjects in the Tylenol group had ALT elevations greater than three times the upper limits of normal.


The highest ALT elevation was greater than 500 which is approximately 10 times the upper limit of normal. All enzyme elevations returned to normal after stopping Tylenol. . . .

(Vicodin) Prescription Painkillers Linked to Hearing Loss

Excerpt:

. . . It is the combination of acetaminophen and hydrocodone that seems to cause hearing loss, though scientists don't yet know how. . . .

[Each VICODIN tablet contains:. Hydrocodone Bitartrate 5 mg. Acetaminophen 500 mg]

Excerpt:

Normal acetaminophen dosage can trigger liver failure in alcoholics

--------------

That article above is included with the thought that as excessive alcohol can cause liver damage, so do lyme toxins. So, anyone with excessive toxins - and liver stress from that - might also be at increased risk for liver damage with even normal doses of acetaminophen (found in Tylenol and other OTC products as well as some prescriptions.)

Thanks Keebler that helps a bunch.

I lived in pain from he#% for over a yr. because I

knew something was wrong with me and I was afraid I

would fry my liver and kidneys.

This could help a lot of people now.
