My PA DD has had these with no problem.
Edit to add: She prefers the chewables to the meltaways. She does not like the meltaway 'sensation'.

My PA son is the WORST medicine taker, but he takes the Tylenol Meltaways without a fight! He has used them for a few years now, never a problem!

We did have a problem with Melt a Ways. Not sure if it was related to him being sick or not. He was sick but had no GI symptoms. Gave him the melt aways and he began vomitting. No other vomitting after that. So, not sure if it was the melt aways or not ...

I have had a problem twice with my non-PA child. Each time I gave them to him he threw up right away. Not sure what is in these, but I will not be buying them anymore.
