Can I Give My Baby Adult Medication Like Acetaminophen
Is it safe to give an 8 month old baby Infant Tylenol every day during teething to help with teething pain & discomfort? Baby's weight is 18 lbs.
Yes, But!: But not the same dose. Must be age and weight adjusted to be safe. Note, the liquid tylenol for children recommends you ask your doctor if child is less than 2 years old, and so you should ask your doctor to help you adjust the correct dose for your child. I agree with dr. Lindor and katz that it is better not to adjust it on your own, and not to give an adult medicine to an infant. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Good day! my son has a fever since lastnight, always 38 degrees celsius never go down eventhough im giving him paracetamol tempra infant drops, his 6 mo?
Fever: Infants meet every virus in the world. They are allways "snotty nosed kids" until the age of 5 yrs. A fever is an immune response and treating those low temps (under 103) may actually inhibit the childs immune response to the illness. Since 90% are viral, and relatively innocent, let the baby handle it, itself for a couple of days. If your worried, check with you dr. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Infant age 1 fever n gave panadol , fever went off last for 2hr . Fever came back again n gave panadol n it also last for another 2 hrs. So now worry.
expected pattern: A child with a fever producing illness will run that fever in some pattern until the illness is gone.This would seldom be less than a few days. Acetaminophen is expected to suppress the fever by a degree or so while it is in the system, but it does not "fix" the illness. If the kid fails to drink well enough to void every 6 hours, refuses to play, or other bothersome symptoms, have it evaluated. ...Read more
Is it ok to mix antibiotic and/or acetaminophen with formula for 16month old baby? Will it not affect the efficacy of the medication?
No: They are the same medication and you should choose one or the other, otherwise you are giving your child double the recommended dose of Acetaminophen (the active ingredient in tylenol). You are likely thinking of alternating Ibuprofen (motrin or advil) and acetaminophen, which is also a controversial topic. Please consult your pediatrician before doing so. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What is the correct dosage for acetaminophen for a 7 month old and 22.8 pound baby? I am giving him1.25 ml every 4 hours and doesn't seems to working
150mg per dose: The dose for a 22lb (10kg) baby is 150mg of tylenol (acetominophen) every 4 to 6 hours as needed for pain or fever. If the baby is very fussy and/or the tylenol is not helping, the parent can call the doctor for what to do. Sometimes serious illnesses can start with routine cold symptoms in a baby. Sometimes they need to be on antibiotics for an infection, so a doctor's exam is beneficial. ...Read more
