I know that Tylenol and Motrin was recalled about 3-4 months ago and I threw away all of my supply. Now that he's getting into teething with a vengeance he needs some relief. Has anyone been able to get it in a store?

i still gave my little one baby tylenol. It's the store's job to take them off the shelves and i asked my doctor first above everything

I have yet to see any on the shelfs or anything. But i dont plan on waiting till it does. My son is also going through teething and i wanted to have something so he isnt so misrable so i just went ahead and got a generic brand. It does the same thing, plus it not as pricey.

Tylenol and Motrin are really hard on the liver. Try natural. The Hylands Teething are good and so is Gripe Water.

my babies doctor told me as long as its the walmart brand its completely safe hopefully this helps and if u have medical card and the baby is 6months or older the doctor can write a rx 4 motrin and they will cover but the baby has 2 be 6 mths or older i know caresourse covers it hopefully this helps

if your baby is 12-17 lbs you can give 1/2 tsp of childrens suspension liquid and is 18-23 lbs you can give 3/4 tsp of childrens suspension liquid it is a bigger bottle than the infants concentrated drops and more stores have this in generic. i got a dosing chart from the dr.

I'm glad you posted about this! I haven't been able to either (I live in Minnesota). I've just been using the Target brand of acetaminophen for occasional teething pain and it seems to work just as well.

I just use the target generic brand as well and it works fine. I also got some from the hospitol as we had a visit when he had a high temp.

Buy the generics - if you check, it's the same active ingredient, hence the same product sans name.

you can always try the no-name stuff at Walmart or Zellers/K-Mart, if you want. I don't find any difference, other than I couldn't find the one without dye in it. It's all red cherry or purple grape, but it does the trick with an upset, teething baby. ;)

Hey Abbey,
I would go for Hylands teething tablets instead of Tylenol as well. My son went from 4 teeth to 8 teeth in a weekend, and all we used were the tablets. They will say on the bottle that you are supposed to dissolve them in water, but I emailed the company and found out that you don't have to dissolve them if you can get them in to his mouth (under the tongue, in the cheek) then just do it that way. They dissolve very quick, and seem to work faster and better (and last longer) without the water!

Where i live we can still buy Tylonel but for teething i use these Organic Teething Tablets..you can buy them from the health food store! works like a charm, theres no drug in it it just calms your baby down and relieves the pain and lets your baby get to sleep!

Hi Abbey,
Go into any chemist or supermarket and buy bongela or teething gel it is the same thing and a teething ring you put into the fridge helps and give them calpol or better still children nurofen it will easy the pain I have four children and that is what I have used and it works. Good luck

I've been looking for it too! I finally ended up just buying the Target store brand. It's exactly the same thing.

They are STILL on recall. I go to the pharmacy and buy the generic stuff. But for teething, I recommend the homeopathic teething tablets! :) They work wonders and they dissolve really easily! :)

No, I have not been able to and I even received replacement coupons from Tylenol. I just purchased the Wal-Mart brand and that seems to work. I also you the Hyland teething tablets for relief.

you can't buy tylenol but you can get acetametaphan (sp) infant drops generic ( target brand I think )

From my last knowledge its still recalled - I belive they are still having problems with the strengths and being to strong and etc... You can get a prescription for it - but it is most likely the pharmacy will give you the generic (acetaminophen) unless dr demands you have the Brand (not too likely). I use the generic, if needed and I also use the Hyland teething tablets - its more natural - I have issues with meds and only use then if I have to. Oh and baby ibuprofen might help as an alternative to Tylenol - if you still wan't to use meds. Becides ibuprofen is more of a pain reliever

I always buy CVS or Walgreens brand and it works just as well. I also don't have to worry about it being recalled every few months. This last recall was like the third in the last year wasn't it?

I havent had any trouble buying either of those until a couple days ago when my local Walgreens suddenly took all the Tylenol off the shelf. We chose to ger the store brand though and its working well so far.

[deleted account]

I have had a problem even finding the "generic" brand of Tylenol. Especially at Target. Though I have used the target or other store brands & they work just as well. Have you tried Hyland Natural teething tablets? they work wonders for my son & I know many other mom's who use them as well and they are safe. I found them at Kroger (not sure if that's in your area)

Infant Tylenol has still not been replenished in stores where I live. A friend of mine is a pharmacist and recommended just going to target and getting their brand of infant pain relieving drops.
I got them for her last round of shots and they seem to work just as well.

My dr. prescribed us some pain medication for my son. For his shots and for teething.
