require a PRESCRIPTION for products such as Excedrin, Vanquish, Goody's Powders, etc

The National Kidney Foundation is urging the FDA to require a PRESCRIPTION for products such as Excedrin, Vanquish, Goody's Powders, etc...because they are "mixed analgesics" containing BOTH aspirin and acetaminophen.

Chronic use of mixed analgesics has additive toxic effects on the kidney...and can lead to kidney failure.

Several European countries have already withdrawn these combination products from the OTC market and now report much lower rates of analgesic-induced kidney disease.
