    Brand-name Tylenol is not really necessary.  A generic version is also available, under the name "acetaminophen".  It's less expensive, too.

    No; there's no Tylenol shortage. There are plenty of packages of Tylenol to be found on the shelf in every drug store and in every grocery store.

    There's a tylenol shortage? Tylenol is used in hospitals to lower fever. People are probably terrified at the thought of going to the hospital right now, so they are stocking up on tylenol in case they develop Covid-19 at home.

    Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds will explain it if you need an explanation.....tylenol was just like drinking water to me, so I just stayed with aspirin.....

    People mistakingly think that Tylenol and other such products will protect them from COVID-19....When in reality they should be boosting their immune system which is nature’s intended way of protecting you from any virus....Vitamin D3, Vitamin C (from citrus fruits, bell peppers, and some veggies), Magnesium (spinach), Selenium (Brazil Nuts), and a high-antioxidant diet of whole grains, lots of herbs and spices (garlic, onion, turmeric (w black pepper), ginger) , nuts and seeds, beans and legumes,  fruits and veggies (organic), lean poultry, wild fish low in mercury (salmon, sardines, anchovies, Atlantic mackerel)....Herbal teas are good (organic), and Pure Filtered Water (Reverse Osmosis)... Exercise 6 days a week (take one rest day).

    People are getting hysterical, looking to stock up on any medicine they think will help. All pain relievers/anti-inflammatories, cold and flu medicines, paper products, etc. will quickly be sold out as soon as they hit the shelves

    The virus screwed up the supply chain. China stopped producing goods for a while. Tylenol is made in China.

      Tylenol is NOT made in China. It is manufactured by the McNeil Consumer Products Company, a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson. McNeil has three plants - in Fort Washington, Pa., near Philadelphia; Dorado, P.R., and Round Rock, Tex., near Austin.
