9 to go and we are at the 100 mark... I should be posting results on Saturday... You all are so awesome!

Thanks to those who have taken the survey, and for those who will finish it out. I have no doubts that 9 more Sparkers will come thru and help me to get this goal met.

What an awesome way to help possibly change the world!

Tried to do the survey. I don't know if it submitted properly. Usually when you submit, it goes to a different window. This did not.

Hi Everyone,
I am still in need of just sixteen more respondents. Total number currently rests at 84... We are sooooo close to 100 people. I feel like I am bugging you, but please understand it is for a very good reason. The statistics I gather from Sparkers will be presented at a public meeting of the FDA in June. I am hoping they will see a direct need to go to consumers and poll them when they create the label warnings so they KNOW people are properly warned of dangers and side effects. The beauty of Sparks is that this is not coming from any one geographical location...it is literally coming from people from this country and beyond. It is so important that they see it isn't from only a hospital, or from a pharmaceutical environment, or from a college...this comes from a cross section of people that I believe has never been seen or heard from before. I believe it could be ground breaking and give them new tools to look at for keeping us all safer.

If you have not taken that time to fill out the survey, please do so...We are so close and yet so far.

I just saw this and took the survey. I am aware that we have to be careful with all NSAIDS but doctors don't treat it seriously. I feel very guilty about my daughter taking high dosages of Advil when she competed in sports. I didn't want her to. So far all seems ok but I worry about it whenever she has any symptoms that could be caused by this. Medications are a trade off. My mom is 92 and doesn't take any medication. Whenever she sees a doctor that is the first thing they ask and they are shocked. She does suffer with some pain and I question her decisions but maybe that is why she is alive now.

I am not losing this fat - I am removing it for good.

Hi Everyone,

So far I am on the downhill side to 100 with 53 responses logged in and 47 to go. Sparkers, You have surpassed my hopes for this day! If you haven't filled it out, please take time to do this. Your efforts might possibly effect some very important change that is direly needed. I wish I could say more but I don't want to bias answers.

DebbieAnne, and all my friends who got me through those dark days, I know I have restricted you from helping and I know you understand. I have to be able to go to the FDA with a clean survey so they know it was average people who filled this out and if they had prior knowledge it wasn't gained from me but their own experiences.

Please understand that if information is omitted on the surveys, other than the name, I cannot use the information as it will effect other information I am compiling. I am not logging names. I am assigning numbers in their place. The course I am taking requires the name field on our surveys, so I did it to prevent point loss. Scored the A but felt it was too much work to recode the areas I would have had to change so I left it alone. None of the information is provided to anyone other than the results of the statistics. Some of the comments will be appearing in my research paper but nothing other than that will appear.

I still need you guys... Keep them coming!

Laurie,
I am hoping that it will go far beyond just me. Its too late for what has happened to us, but not too late for others. I am doing this so others don't have happen to them what happened to us by taking steps to at least try to get the necessary changes made in labeling for better consumer protection.

Your participation is helping us to get there.

Thank you.

K.

I just took the survey. I dont know what happened to you and your family but it must not have been good. Please know I am sorry for what ever it was that happened and I hope in taking this survey me, as well as the others, are able to help you take the step you need in making changes.

Blessing to you and yours,

For those of you who have taken the survey, God Bless all of you. Within seconds, and I do mean seconds, of posting this, people started to respond. Within just a short period of time, I have received 25 more surveys. I have 64 to go to reach a goal of 100 people.

If you have read this and you don't think I need you, I do. I need all the help I can get with this... We have the opportunity to make a huge difference in many lives... many of them children.

Did you know in one study alone, when parents were asked to measure out the proper dosage for a child based on the weight chart provided in the packaging, 80% of those parents measured out a wrong dosage...they would have unintentionally overdosed their own child.

It is so very important that we try to change the wrongs in this world. And this really doesn't take anything but a few minutes. I need to know how you perceive the label instructions of this products so I can go to them and tell them what this survey proves...to at least get them to start looking at consumer perception.

I believe in Sparks People to get the job done. I need you...keep them coming. Send the link to friends if you can.

God Bless all of you. I feel more hope now than I have for a very long time.

K.

Hi everyone,

A few weeks back I posted regarding a college research paper I am writing. I have been in contact with the FDA and CDER of the FDA as well as the DDI. For this research paper, I wrote about Acetaminophen (commonly known as Tylenol) Poisoning and how the general public perceives the information/warning labels of this product. They are currently reviewing the labels to make some changes for public safety. Without sharing why I am doing this, please know that once you submit your survey, the reasons why will be made clear.

I ask a few things in advance:
1.If you are aware of my daughters story, please do not take this survey. I need people who have no prior knowledge of her history and what we have been through.

2. If you are under the age of 18, please do not take the survey.

3. If you would like to make a difference and work to save the lives of others, this will only take a few minutes and costs nothing.

4. Do not post back to this discussion thread with comments regarding the story you have read after submitting the survey. If you would like to send me comments, feel free to email me. I would love to talk to others about this.

I really need your help now. Together, we have the opportunity to make a difference and turn a tragedy into something that can go a long, long way to help others but I cannot do this alone. It is imperative that you take the time to fill this out.

Thank you so very much in advance,
Kippy
