The Right Dose

Tylenol & Motrin Dosage Chart

 

Whether our children have fever or pain, acetaminophen (such as Tylenol™) and ibuprofen (such as Motrin™ or Advil™) are our main tools to help them feel better. Both are great medications for fever and pain, and ibuprofen has an added benefit of fighting inflammation.

 

When it comes to a fever, we want parents to know, it’s the body‘s way of fighting off the infection. The goal of a fever reducer is to make a kid feel better so they can rest and recover.

 

Both medications should be given in appropriate doses and with appropriate timing. Oral dosing recommendations on the packages of medications are most often given in weight or age ranges. This can lead to under-dosing or slight over-dosing.

 

Please refer to our dosing chart so you can safely dose your child based on their current weight.

“We arrived early evening on a Saturday, we were greeted with a smile by the two wonderful ladies at the desk. Check-in was fast, and only waited a short time to be seen. Dr Townsend was great, went way above to make my three year comfortable . He had the best bedside manner that I have seen in a long time from medical professionals. I want thank the whole team for a visit my daughter really didn’t want to leave.” 5 Star Google Review, January 2020
