• Tylenol elixir is a preparation of N-acetyl-paminophenol. It was administered alone to 20 febrile patients and, with other medicaments, to 121 infants and children with 20 diagnoses. In the 20 febrile patients it gave an antipyretic effect rated as good to excellent in 18 cases. It was considered to have produced a good analgesic effect in 68 of the 121 patients receiving mixed medication. Sideeffects were absent in 134 patients in this study and were considered to be equivocal or inconsequential in the others.
