2 pain relievers: Panadol and tylenol (acetaminophen) are brand names for what is called Acetaminophen in the U.S. And paracetamol in most other parts of the world. It is a pain reliever without anti-inflammatory properties. Advil is ibuprofen, an anti-inflammatory drug. Acetaminophen is easier on the stomach and kidneys than ibuprofen, but can cause liver damage if taken in excessive doses.

Don't alternate: I don't recommend that you alternate antipyrectics like tylenol (acetaminophen) and advil. There is too great of a risk of accidentally overdosing one of the medications. It is better to dose the medications based specifically upon your child's weight. Your pediatrician can calculate a dosage range based upon weight. (this is often different that what you see on the bottle).
