History of TYLENOL Brand
Before there was such a product as TYLENOL 8-hour arthritis pain caplets, Robert McNeil opened McNeil Pharmacy in Philadelphia, back in 1879. McNeil manufactured and sold medicines to the city's many hospitals and doctors. His son, Robert Lincoln McNeil, joined the business in 1904 and focused on expanding their phamaceutical offerings. In 1955, McNeil introduced TYLENOL Elixir for Children, the first aspirin-free pain reliever, available only by prescription. In the years since, TYLENOL has become one of the most recognized and respected brands, with new variations constantly in development, such as TYLENOL Arthritis Extended Release Caplets.
