well, the baby asprin recall could affect quite a few of us. I have no clue about the tylonol and motrin and rolaids recall but baby asprin is pretty standard to treatment from what I have seen.

The active ingredient in Tylenol is Acetaminophen. Acetaminophen is sold under various brand names, including Tylenol, Panadol, Aspirin Free Anacin, and Bayer Select Maximum Strength Headache Pain Relief Formula and others. So you should be able to locate some acetaminophen that you can take without worrying about the Tylenol brand name.

Do be carefull with Tylenol or anything with Acetaminophen. Taken to much can do harm Back in 2008 my daughter took to much and almost died. If, her girlfrend had not been there, we would have found her dead. Now, she cannot take anything with acetaminophen.

Take care
Enjoy what you can today and leave the rest for another day.

Since this post is about Acetaminophen, I wanted to mention the gathering evidence that there is a link between Acetaminophen and asthma, and other lung conditions - especially in children and teenagers - but it holds for adults as well.  This has been in the news recently, and my mother alerted me to it.  When I googled it it seems it's been suspected since the 90's and further studies are bearing it out.  Although the exact link is still uncertain.
My mother has a blood disorder that prevents her taking aspirin/ibuprophin.  She's been taking Tylenol for decades for her arthritis.  She's also been coughing for decades - cause undetermined - although she's been diagnosed with everything from GERD to asthma and COPD as the reason, and then UNdiagnosed.  She's 85 now and sleeps with oxygen.  Wondering if there could be a connection......
Anyone taking it regularly should do some research or talk to their doctors..... 
diagnoses:  fibro; osteoporosis; UCTD; celiac; mild RA
meds: Plaquenil 400 mg, occasional low dose xanax for sleep aid, artificial tears w/ ointment at night, Advil/aspirin prn and lots of vitamins

Just a thought.  What about those that take Darvocet?  It is mixed with a lot of acetaminophen.  I have been taking it for almost a year now.  Not every day just when needed and have taken tylenol for years and years, along with perscription ibuprophen.  It's very scary to think how much we put into our bodies.   Hope all is well, thank you Okie for the info.  AnnieRae :-)
