Pardon the radio silence around here lately. The baby is on round two of teething, and he's not happy. The song goes, "If Mama ain't happy, ain't nobody happy," but I think it's more likely, "If baby ain't happy, ain't nobody happy. " We're all short on sleep, even the preschooler, who can't help but be disturbed when his next-room-neighbor is waking up inconsolable several times a night. My husband and I have been taking turns stumbling into the baby's room, offering bottles, hugs, snuggles, teething rings.

CHICAGO -- The maker of Tylenol agreed to pay an undisclosed sum to settle a lawsuit filed by the families of seven people who died after taking cyanide-laced capsules in 1982.The surprise settlement apparently is the last of the litigation stemming from the case. Because there was no trial, it was not determined whether Johnson & Johnson and the division that manufactures Tylenol, McNeil Consumer Products Co., was negligent for failing to use tamper-resistant packaging.The case, in which the victims unknowingly ingested Extra-Strength Tylenol capsules laced with fatal doses of potassium cyanide poison, led to federal regulations requiring the use of tamper-resistant packaging of consumer products ranging from medicines to salad dressing.

First there was a child with a cold. Twelve-year-old Mary Kellerman took a pain reliever early on a Wednesday morning in 1982 in her home in Elk Grove Village, Ill. Minutes later, she lay dying on the bathroom floor. Doctors thought she might have suffered a stroke. But within two days, six more people in the Chicago area had died, and the murder weapon was identified as Tylenol capsules whose burnt-almond smell revealed they had been opened and packed with cyanide. The investigation that followed was one of the biggest in U.S. history, involving hundreds of agents from the FBI, the Illinois State Police, and police departments in Chicago and a half-dozen suburbs.

Our son, who is now 21, cannot take Tylenol. It gives him night terrors that are extremely vivid and traumatic. We discovered this when he was a child. After I read that Tylenol could be the cause, I quit giving it to him and we had no more episodes.Last summer he became ill away from home. One of his house mates gave him some cold medication and he had night terrors for the first time in years. It turned out the cold medicine contained acetaminophen, the same ingredient in Tylenol.When a medicine is as ubiquitous as acetaminophen (the fever reducer of choice for children)

I take six Tylenol Arthritis Pain pills every day. They contain 650 mg each of acetaminophen. I read recently that acetaminophen can increase blood pressure. Should I worry? You are taking the maximum allowable daily dose of acetaminophen (3,900 mg daily). Recent research has shown that rou tine use of as little as 500 mg of this pain reliever daily may elevate the risk of developing high blood pressure for some women. The Nurses' Health Study has been following thousands of women for decades.

The Maryland Poison Center warned yesterday that the packaging and label of a new form of Children's Tylenol might confuse parents and lead them to accidentally give their youngsters a double dose, risking liver damage if the mistake is repeated over time. At issue in the warning is the 80-milligram form of Children's Tylenol Meltaways. The flavored, chewable tablets, intended for children ages 2 to 6, come in "blister packs" - cardboard sheets holding tablets sealed in plastic. Poison Center officials said that while some of the blister packs contain one tablet correctly labeled 80 mg, others - also labeled 80 mg - contain two 80 mg tablets, or a total of 160 mg. The two-tablet packs were intended as a convenience to parents who might be instructed to give their children 160 mg. But Poison Center officials thought the labeling was "slightly confusing."

I heard a report about the effectiveness of magnetic bracelets for arthritis pain. My 85-year-old father suffers terribly and has been taking Celebrex. We're concerned about reports linking Celebrex to heart attacks and strokes. Heart disease runs in our family, so I want to find the bracelets for him. Others in our family have similar concerns. I had my knees replaced in my mid-50s, and my son, in his 30s, is already miserable. I need to know more. What journal published the study? What are the specifics about the type of magnetic bracelet?
