Tylenol for Babies & Toddlers: Follow-up Discussion on #LTKH Tweet Chat

Toddler laying on a floor among toys, too s

On May 17 and 18, 2011 there was a joint meeting of the FDA Advisory Committee for Nonprescription Drugs and the FDA Pediatric Advisory Committee. I wrote an article about that meeting on May 18, 2011 entitled Tylenol No Longer Deemed a Pain Reliever for Babies & Toddlers. At the time, that was the biggest news that came out of the FDA panel.

In March of 2015, someone on Facebook found this post and began to share it, even though the post had not been updated for four years. This took us by surprise, but pointed out the question of Tylenol for babies and toddlers is still important to parents of young children.

The following text is the #Storify transcript of an #LTKH (Let’s Talk Kids’ Health) Tweet Chat on March 30, 2015.
