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. Now, dosing has been made even easier for parents and safer for children as the new PediaCare® and Little Remedies® single-concentration acetaminophen products hit store shelves!
Two of the leading children’s pain relievers, PediaCare® and Little Remedies®, now 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 (aff) 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 Fevers® infants’ and children’s acetaminophen products are among 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 Fevers® 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.
