Could it have anything to do with the fillers commonly used in these tablets?
I was once in a hospital )about 20 years ago) and I complained of a headache so the nurse offered a Tylenol. It did little to help. But then when I got an itemized bill, it turned out that one Tylenol tablet cost $18.00. Yes, you can go to your supermarket and probably buy over 1,000 Tylenols for the cost of this one pill at the hospital.
But, of course, you're not allowed to bring in your own meds.
Using Aleve instead of Tylenol for an asthmatic.
Also good for migraines too if taken early enough.
Of course lurkers, consult your physician about what’s best for you.
also causes hepatitis which the company also has ignored.
well, one problem might be that those with asthma and allergies are told to use tylenol (acetaminophen) instead of aspirin or NSAIDS like Motrin or Advil, because NSAIDS and aspirin can cause asthma.
So is it the cause, or just a bad sample?
Also, most teenagers never take any pain reliever. So is the population that takes tylenol/acetaminophen biased toward those who have other medical problems that could be associated with asthma?
Normally cold or flu or ailment prompts one to dose themselves with Tylenol and all three conditions are known Asthma triggers.
Chicken or the egg?
Acetaminophen is used in a lot of cold remedies. Don’t asthma symptoms frequently follow colds? Maybe the asthma is a result of cold germs and not the acetaminophen taken by these kids.
Maybe I can call one of the ambulance chasers that advertise all day on Fox News and sue somebody.
This can easily become the "asbestos of the 21st Century". I hope some sleazy lawyer isn't trolling Free Republic today.
