I have posted previously about Dr. Jay Gordon and his views on vaccinations. I received an newsletter from him this morning regarding the current Pertussis scare, Tylenol recall as well as some of his political views. I thought it worth sharing here for those of you unaware of Dr. Gordon or his newsletters:
From Jay Gordon, MD, FAAP Pertussis, Tylenol Recall and More
June 24, 2010
Since the April recall, Children's Tylenol, Benadryl, Motrin and other McNeil Pharmaceutical products are still unavailable for purchase. The latest report says we should not expect a return of these products until 2011. You can receive updates from the makers of Tylenol on their website. In the meantime, I recommend generic brands of diphenhydramine (Benadryl) for allergies and generic acetaminophen and ibuprofen for fever control when you need it.
Here is a resource to help you determine the proper amount of acetaminophen to give your child.
Some of you have expressed interest in Senator Barbara Boxer and my support for her advocacy for children. My wife and I are co-hosting an afternoon with Senator Boxer at a private home in Santa Monica this Sunday, June 27th and also will be co-hosting an event with Senator Boxer and Vice President Biden in July. If you are interested in either of these fund raising events, please email Sheila Creal at SHEILATCREAL@AOL.COM
Thanks for reading!
