Dear Drug Companies,
While I appreciate the action, perhaps you could save some money--and children--if we just found a way to print the information large enough for bleary-eyed parents to read!
As a maternally-aged mother, trying to read the Tylenol bottle at 0-dark-thirty proved nearly impossible. (I am only 37 and my eyesight is normally fine but after rising with an infant as well as a sick child, my eyes don't focus quite as well in the wee hours as I'd like).
Luckily I could read the dosage amount (though I already knew that as my daughter had already had one dose earlier). With the combination of my poor memory and lack of sleep however, I wanted to check to ensure that she could get another dose at 4 hours rather than 6. While I suspect part of the problem is that I may be contracting her cold as well, it was still excruciating trying to read the tiny print on the side of the bottle.
I know you must include all of the side effects and possible drug interactions but I would not have been able to read those, either. Can't we include that on the insert but print the dosage information in larger print?
