Hey @duanereade ! This #NYC Mom is Your Ideal #DReade VIP Blogger!

Those who know me, know that I’m a die-hard New Yorker.

I grew up in this city.

I went to college in this city.

I even went to grad school in this city.

Though my husband hears the call of the suburbs whispering in his ears, I prefer to nod off to sleep listening to the buzz of traffic and the lull of sirens going in all directions.

And to think…there are people who choose to live amongst the trees even though they are giving up a 24-hour Duane Reade on every other block?!

According to the Duane Reade Store Locator, there are 21 Duane Reade stores within a mile of my apartment building…


An Update on the McNeil Recall of Tylenol, Motrin and Zyrtec

If you've been wondering when infants' and children's liquid Tylenol, Motrin and Zyrtec would reappear on drugstore shelves, the answer is no time soon.

Today, I received a letter from McNeil Consumer Healthcare (Ironically addressed to Mrs. Bernstein, despite the fact that my husband was actually the one who spoke to McNeil on the phone to secure our refund!) to update me on the status of recalled products.

The gist of the letter is basically that they are "conducting a comprehensive quality review…and have identified corrective actions that we will take before we begin manufacturing at the plant where the recalled products were made" and that it take at least until the end of 2010 before they are able to begin selling these medications again.
