Tylenol (acetaminophen) vs ibuprofen for kids; any recommendations?

Tylenol (acetaminophen) vs ibuprofen for kids; any recommendations?

Depends: Ibuprofen is my preferred med. It lasts longer (isn't gives so often). I shouldn't be given < 6m due to risks of kidney irritation.

Parents should pay more attention to fluid intake when ill than temperature. ...Read more
