Tylenol (brand) in Thailand

Post by Name Taken » Fri Nov 04, 2016 7:42 am

Does anyone know who owns, produces and distributes Tylenol (brand) in Thailand?
Is it a family or a Company?

Tylenol is produced by Johnson & Johnson and distributed in Thailand by DKSH

Okay, I knew it was a different Manufacturer than the Manufacturer of Tylenol in the U.S. because the bottle of Tylenol I have is not in English and Tylenol Caplets are not even available here in Thailand. I like the Tylenol Caplets because they are smaller and easier to swallow than the Tylenol 'Tablets' that are sold here. Tylenol must have a licensing agreement with this DKSH-OLIC (Thailand) Limited Company.
Thanks for the replies.

Where did you buy them? Because I have not seen them for sale anywhere.
I have only seen one type of Tylenol (brand) for sale here in Thailand, and they're not the caplet type.

Can't remember where I bought it, but probably a local pharmacy rather than in a supermarket or market village. Here's a pic to show it really exists :)

Not sure if you're just stupid, or being an asshole and a troll.
But those are the only type of Tylenol 'Caplets' that are sold in Thailand and they are different than the Tylenol "Caplets' that are sold in the U.S.
Also, I would also like to see Tylenol PM for sale in Thailand.

Why so rude? I was trying to be helpful. You asked about Tylenol caplets and I told you. Maybe you could explain how they're different to the ones you want, instead of just being abusive. Different drug? Different size? And the first time you've mentioned Tylenol PM, whatever that is.

My apologies hhinner.
The Tylenol 'Caplets' that are sold in the U.S. are a different size, they're smaller and(at least for me) easier to swallow.
