I have been reading the concerns some of you have with red dye being associated with seizures. I was wondering if anyone knows if there is red dye in children's or infants tylenol? I find it odd that it is in tegretol and advil. This is what got me thinking about tylenol, etc. I have e-mailed the Rx companies that make tylenol but no response. Please help if you can. Thanks bunches!
Please see the thread re Red Dye and seizures. There is a link to Children's Tylenol there, I think. Their website says they it has Red Dye #33 plus a blue pigment. Donno what's in the #33. I did read today some labels in the grocery store and those that I looked at did have #40 in it. Read all labels. What I looked at was GatorAde and some strawberry pop-tarts. Tattoo
Great inquiry. I believe there is dye in Tylenol since the color of the formula, as I recall, is either purple or pink. Fortunately, Motrin now offers a dye-free pain reliever/fever reducer for children. KP2002
