I just ran across this article in Pediatrics magazine, further establishing the link between the use of acetaminophen and the asthma epidemic in the US.
If you or your kids are at risk (ie: have a family history of, or other significant contributing factors - like food allergies) for asthma, you would do well to find another fever and pain reducer.
In my house, we use the homeopathic remedy by HomeoLab called Kids Relief Pain and Fever Oral Solution. It doesn’t work for every single type of ache or pain (homeopathic remedies are very specific that way), but more often than not, it is just as effective as an OTC drug.
Read the full article of The Association of Acetaminophen and Asthma Prevalence and Severity here.
(And HI! by the way! We’re all moved and mostly settled into our new home and new routines. I’m hoping to get some more things posted on a regular basis now!) :)
