The F.D.A. and Acetaminophen
03/12/02 J.R. Rogers
Since about 2001, the FDA has been taking a deeper look into dangers associated with taking acetaminophen (best known under the "Tylenol" brand name). There are about 600 products on the market that contain acetaminophen and in many instances, consumers are not even aware of it. They include pain, cold and flu remedies that are sold over the counter.

Why do these companies care so much?

Even though Tylenol and Advil went generic long ago, the brand equity they provide is still vital to both companies. Tylenol is one of the best-known brands in J&J's consumer-products basket, which has provided a major cushion in a rough economy. While J&J's prescription-drug and medical-device units have stagnated of late, its consumer business has been growing about 10% year-over-year. Consumer products accounted for $16 billion of the company's $64 billion in sales last year. (The company does not break out Tylenol sales.)

J&J's consistent leadership on drugstore shelves has helped its stock weather the recession better than that of some of its pure-play competitors: J&J's stock has fallen only 3% this year, while consumer giant Procter & Gamble (PG) has dropped 14%, and prescription drugmaker Pfizer has lost 13%.

Pfizer is now trying to be less of a pure play, which is why it announced in January that it would buy Wyeth for $68 billion. Advil is one of the crown jewels in that purchase, with sales of $673 million in 2008. In 2006, Wyeth introduced Advil PM, a direct competitor to the similarly named Tylenol PM. Both pain drugs contain a sleep medication. Sales of Advil PM rose a remarkable 17% in 2008, after Wyeth advertised the drug heavily on television. Advil PM was the fastest growing product for Wyeth Consumer Healthcare, the unit that accounted for 12% of the company's $22.8 billion in sales last year.
