AccuDial Recommendations for Safer and Effective Dosing to Pediatric Acetaminophen Advisory Committee
Date:5/19/2011

promote consistent weight-based dosing of acetaminophen at 15mg/kg, which has been accepted as a safe and effective dose of acetaminophen by the FDA (and supported by pediatric pharmacokinetic studies, i.e., Dr. Anthony Temple, 1983, Journal of Pediatric Pharmacology).

Dr. Brian Kaplan, M.D. gave AccuDial's recommendations to the committee and added, "I have treated over 15,000 children in my career as a physician and I believe these recommendations will resolve all the issues and problems relevant to dosing acetaminophen to children."

Wednesday morning the FDA Advisory Committee approved the following:

  • Dosing instructions for children between ages 6 months to 2 years of age, based on weight and age; and
  • Dosing instructions by weight (as well as age) on the Drug Facts label for all children's single-ingredient acetaminophen medicines.

ABOUT ACCUDIAL PHARMACEUTICAL

Children's AccuDial® is a revolutionary line of OTC medications designed to give your child an accurate dose of medicine. The weight of children in the same age group can vary greatly, and they should not always be given the same amount of medicine. According to the American Medical Association, 72% of children are dosed inaccurately with OTC medications. Using the patented AccuDial rotating dosing system, a caregiver simply turns the label of the bottle and matches the child's weight with the correct dose listed in milliliters.
