APAP suppository FeverAll returns to store shelves

MORRISTOWN, N.J. — Actavis is in the process of bringing FeverAll acetaminophen suppositories back to the market, the company announced. FeverAll had been unavailable while changes were being made at the product's manufacturing facility.

According to the company, FeverAll is the only infant-strength acetaminophen suppository available for sale over-the-counter. The suppository dose form has two advantages. First, suppositories help reassure parents that their child is getting the full dose of the medicine. Second, parents may also prefer FeverAll when fever or pain is accompanied by an upset stomach, or when their child has difficulty swallowing. "Because it is a suppository, there are no worries about a child spitting it out, like with liquid medications," said Sarita Thapar, Actavis director of medical affairs. "As a mom, that's one less thing to worry about when your little one isn't feeling well."

The brand and Thapar were featured on a segment of Lifetime Television's "The Balancing Act." To view that video go to FeverAll.com.
