The FDA is informing the public that an additional concentration of liquid acetaminophen marketed for “infants” (160 mg/5 mL) is now available. Giving the wrong dose of acetaminophen can cause the medication to be ineffective if too little is given or cause serious side effects and, possibly, death if too much is given. Acetaminophen is marketed under brand names such as Tylenol, Little Fevers, Triaminic, Infant/Pain Reliever, Pedia Care, Triaminic Infants’ Syrup Fever Reducer Pain Reliever and other store brands (e.g., Rite Aid, CVS, Walgreens brand, etc.).

In a move to curb overdoses of the pain and fever medicine acetaminophen, Johnson & Johnson and other drug makers will switch to a single concentration in their over-the-counter remedies for infants and children, according to three of the companies. The move will affect J&J’s Tylenol, Triaminic, manufactured by Novartis AG, and generic children’s medicines containing acetaminophen.
