Infant’s Acetaminophen Concentration Change

Posted in General News on Friday, May 18, 2012 at 5:40 PM

Companies are changing the concentration of this medication for infants, and there are new dosing directions.  Click here for more details.  For the next year or so, both products may be on store shelves, so it’s important to know which one you are administering to your child.  The most important thing to be aware of is this:  If the product came with a small (0.8 ml) dropper, you have the concentrated drops.  This is the concentration that is being phased out.  The reason:  If a parent doses this product using the directions for the less concentrated product, an overdose may occur.
