Parents across the U.S. often reach for Children’s Motrin to bring down a child’s fever, trusting that the popular over-the-counter medicine is perfectly safe. To the contrary, Ibuprofen, the active ingredient in Children’s Motrin, is linked to a life-threatening skin condition called Stevens Johnson Syndrome (SJS).

kid-tubesStevens Johnson Syndrome (SJS) is a severe skin disorder affecting the skin and the mucous membranes. The skin cells of a child with SJS begin to die and shed from the body as the skin’s outer layer separates from the inner layer. Ibuprofen in Children’s Motrin and other medicines can also cause Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis (TEN).

TEN and SJS are similar disorders that differ from each other in the degree of skin detachment suffered by the patient.

Due to inadequate warnings of the risk of SJS by the maker of Children’s Motrin (McNeil Laboratories), parents and health care personnel used Children’s Motrin and other Ibuprofen drugs, resulting in multiple SJS and TEN cases that could have been avoided.

If your child developed Stevens Johnson Syndrome after taking Children’s Motrin, you may be entitled to compensation from the manufacturer of this dangerous medicine. Contact an experienced drug injury lawyer to see if you are eligible to file a Children’s Motrin SJS lawsuit.
