FDA issues warning on popular painkiller
San Diego Union-Tribune

The Food and Drug Administration is urging a bit of caution in the use of acetaminophen, saying that in rare cases the widely used pain and fever reducer can cause serious skin reactions, and that there’s a small chance that some reactions could be fatal. The advisory doesn’t suggest that people stop taking the drug, which is found in such products as Tylenol, Midol, Vicodin, Benadryl, Robitussen and Sudafed.
