Acetaminophen and Ibuprofen Dosages
If your child needs comfort to treat a fever or pain, here are the dosages we recommend:
We recommend generic preparations since they are just as effective as brand name medicines and are much cheaper. Beware of concentration difference for Ibuprofen preparations.
PLEASE DO NOT GIVE YOUR CHILD ASPIRIN. Aspirin also reduces fever but has been linked to Reye’s syndrome, a disease that may affect the liver and brain, and therefore should not be used in children under the age of 12.
