advertising wars between Advil and Tylenol
Can you believe the advertising wars between Advil and Tylenol?
The Advil people are saying that acetaminophen is unsafe in people who consume alcohol. They paid newspapers to print a real letter from an angry Tylenol user (who regularly drank wine in the evening) and ended up with an emergency liver transplant. They also had a TV ad emphasizing the alcohol warning on the Tylenol package.
Before this, the Tylenol folks ran ads warning that ibuprofen can aggravate ulcers...and ads about it interfering with blood pressure meds.
