    I know this isn't Disney related so forgive me please, but I need to ask a question. Why have Tylenols been replaced by Advils in USA? Thank you.

    I know there has been a hoo haa about Tylenols but what was it please?

    What do you mean replaced? They're both brand names, Tylenol is paracetamol and advil is ibuprofen. I don't think paracetamol is the favoured drug for pain relief in the US because of the risks associated with overdose, but I could be wrong.

    Maybe I worded it wrong, I noticed that I couldn't buy Tylenols like I could in previous years, they were harder to find but Advils had taken up the shelf space.

    I *heard* there had been an issue with Tylenols in the US and I wondered what the issue is, as I need to find out for a reason HTH?

    Tylenol is one of the few pain medications that either I or Donna can take so if they disappear we will have a major problem. Ibuprofen reacts with some of our prescription meds so we have to limit our intake of them.

    Many stores carry a general version of acetomenaphine so you should be ok.
