FORT WASHINGTON, Pa., Nov. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- McNeil Consumer Healthcare Division of McNeil-PPC, maker of TYLENOL(R) (acetaminophen), today announced the launch of TylenolEspanol.com, a Spanish-language version of the Tylenol.com website. While the English version has attracted millions of visitors since launch, the new TylenolEspanol.com website will provide Hispanic families and healthcare providers with access to the TYLENOL(R) (acetaminophen) product information and other health information that English- speaking consumers can routinely access at Tylenol.com.

The U.S. Census Bureau projects that by 2010, there will be nearly 48 million people of Hispanic origin living in the United States. It is critical for those who speak only Spanish or those whose English skills are still developing to have access to healthcare information that they can easily and fully comprehend.

TylenolEspanol.com offers exactly the same content as Tylenol.com, including more than 1,000 pages translated into Spanish and information about all TYLENOL(R) (acetaminophen) products sold in the U.S., as well as resources such as:

-- Pain treatment information and resources -- Full product packaging translations -- General health tips

"As one of the most widely used and respected pain relievers, it is important that Tylenol product information be available to as many people as possible, and this includes Spanish-speaking Americans," said Ashley McEvoy, President of McNeil Consumer Healthcare. "TylenolEspanol.com provides this valuable information as a resource for those responsible for making important healthcare decisions to take care of their families and themselves."

TYLENOL(R) is the best-selling brand of pain reliever for adults in the U.S. and has fifty-years of clinical history to support its safety and efficacy. When used as directed, TYLENOL(R) has a superior safety profile compared with many other OTC pain relievers. Acetaminophen, the medicine in TYLENOL(R), is one of the most studied drugs in the world. However all medicines carry risks of possible side effects. The makers of TYLENOL(R) strongly recommend consumers read the product label for dosing information and only use TYLENOL(R) as directed. TYLENOL(R) should not be used with other acetaminophen-containing products. Consumers should talk with their healthcare professional if they have any questions or concerns.
