Zithromax Z-pac caused my DD2 at age 16 to go into kidney failure. Looking up later, that was one of the possible side effects, "acute renal failure". Thank goodness she recovered only because of a wonderful doctor and 2 weeks in the hospital, but time after time were asked if she had taken Motrin. Apparently 3/4th of the children on this floor had kidney failure due to Motrin, as per another mother.

~by the way, does everyone remember St. Joseph aspirin when you were a kid? Tylenol did a great campaign to take the market share.

This is horrific. You take diabetes drugs to avoid such complications. I don't take anything now unless I research it online.

The Chicago Tylenol murders were a series of poisoning deaths resulting from drug tampering in the Chicago metropolitan area in 1982. The victims had all taken Tylenol-branded acetaminophen capsules that had been laced with potassium cyanide.[1] A total of seven people died in the original poisonings, with several more deaths in subsequent copycat crimes.

The incidents led to reforms in the packaging of over-the-counter substances and to federal anti-tampering laws. The actions of Johnson & Johnson to reduce deaths and warn the public of poisoning risks have been widely praised as an exemplary response to such a crisis

Oh yes, I remember the Tylenol poisonings now that you jog my memory but I thought she was talking about St, Joseph baby aspirin poisonings and I didn't remember that one.

I won't touch Tylenol. It doesn't do a thing for me, and the level where it becomes organ-killing toxic is razor thin.
