Stock Your Medicine Cabinet with PediaCare® and Little Fevers® – the First Single Concentration Acetaminophen Products with New Dosing Features to be on Store Shelves this Summer

Acetaminophen is one of the most commonly used pain and fever relievers for infants and children and is safe and effective when used as directed. In July 2011, dosing has been made even easier for parents and safer for children when the new PediaCare® and Little Remedies® single-concentration acetaminophen products hit store shelves. The new standard concentration liquid acetaminophen products for infants and children under age 2 will be 160 mg/5 ml. But what does this mean for parents?

Two of the leading children’s pain relievers, PediaCare® and Little Remedies®, will also offer additional product enhancements, including age-appropriate dosing devices. Infant products will now contain a special dosing syringe and flow restrictors on the bottles; children’s products, for ages 2 to 11 years, will have the bottles with flow restrictors, and continue to contain dosing cups. Both infant and children’s formulations will continue to have weight-based instructions on the package, as well.

While the new single-concentration for PediaCare® and Little Remedies® infants’ and children’s acetaminophen products will be the first to hit store shelves, parents should know that there will be a “transition period” during which the existing infant products and the new acetaminophen infant PediaCare® and Little Remedies® products may be on store shelves simultaneously. The new infants’ formula is less concentrated and the dose is therefore more than in the older infant formulation. And while reading and following package directions is always recommended to obtain accurate dosing instructions, it will be important, while the two concentrations are available, to select the dose that is proper for the specific product version that is being given. Parents and caregivers should ask a healthcare professional if they have any questions.

The voluntary changes to single-concentration acetaminophen dosing demonstrate the continued commitment to accuracy, safety and innovation from PediaCare® and Little Remedies®.

While both PediaCare® and Little Remedies® products will continue to offer effective pain/fever relief, here are a few key highlights:
