Tylenol-fun fact, usage, and dosage chart

Fun fact:


infant’s Tylenol and children’s Tylenol are the same thing with the same strength of medicine. (160 milligrams per 5 milliliters).



· Infant’s Tylenol comes with a syringe while Children’s Tylenol comes with a cup.


· Infant’s Tylenol is much more expensive than the Children’s Tylenol. It is usually around 3 times more expensive, for the same exact product.



Ask a pharmacist at your local pharmacy for a free syringe that measures 5 milliliters. This way, you can spend less by purchasing the Children’s Tylenol and getting a free syringe from the pharmacist. Keep the cup as it will come in handy in the future when your child is older.

· If the weight is unknown, weigh the baby before giving Tylenol. If you are unable to weigh the baby, base the dose off of their last known weight. Do not assume they are in the next weight range.


· Monitor any allergic reactions.



I hope this information was helpful. I wish I knew this early on but we learn something new each and every day.
