How soon after giving my 1 year old ibuprofen can I give tylenol (acetaminophen)?

How soon after giving my 1 year old ibuprofen can I give tylenol (acetaminophen)?

Tylenol (acetaminophen) motín : Both are give every 6 - 8 hr. So the idea is to alternate each one , so every 3-4 hr you are alternating (tylenol (acetaminophen) now , Motrin 3-4 hrs later and so on). In reality this has not shown any benefit. Stick with just one, see doctor if no improvement. ...Read more

I have a 10 year old girl who has been taken loratadine for a week and now she says she that her head hurts can I give tylenol (acetaminophen) or motrin?

I have a 10 year old girl who has been taken loratadine for a week and now she says she  that her head hurts can I give tylenol (acetaminophen) or  motrin?

Yes but: I suspect that her headache may be from nasal congestion which loratadine has no effect on. Consider trying a nasal steroid for a few days and see if this works better.

Too close: Tylenol/acetaminophen should be given at 4-6 hour intervals, with max of 5/d. Motrin/ibuprofen should be dosed 6-8 hours with max of 4/day. Check dosage label on the bottle for best effect. Fever itself is not harmful unless over 105+ degrees and helps the body to fight infection. OK to medicate for discomfort but push fluids as well and keep clothing light. ...Read more
