(Headline USA) Caring for sick children has become extra stressful recently for many U.S. parents in the Biden era due to shortages of Children’s Tylenol and other medicines.
An unusually fast start to the annual U.S. flu season, plus a spike in other respiratory illnesses, created a surge in demand for fever relievers and other products people can buy without a prescription.
“There are more sick kids at this time of year than we have seen in the past couple of years,” said Dr. Shannon Dillon, a pediatrician at Riley Children’s Health in Indianapolis.
Aside from over-the-counter products, the prescription antibiotic amoxicillin also is in short supply due to increased demand, according to the Food and Drug Administration. The drug is often used to treat nose and throat infections in children.
