Infant Ibuprofen Recall

See the following link for information regarding a recent recall on Infant Ibuprofen.

https://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/tris-pharma-issues-voluntary-nationwide-recall-of-infants-ibuprofen-concentrated-oral-suspension-usp-nsaid-50-mg-per-1-25-ml-due-to-potential-higher-concentrations-of-ibuprofen-300760721.html

An important point of clarification is that our Health Statements given out at check-ups give doses for CHILDREN’S acetaminophen (tylenol) and ibuprofen (motrin, advil, etc). Children’s acetaminophen and infant’s acetaminophen are THE SAME. However, ibuprofen still has a more concentrated form of the medicine which is the infants. It often makes life easier JUST TO BUY “CHILDREN’S.” If you have dosing questions on these medicines you can refer to the “Resources” link on our website where we have dosing charts.
