... give him pamprin
8 Dec 2009
No Pamrin as it is just too strong. Try some peppermint tea. That should break the headache. Other choices of herbs for that tea are relaxants such as chamomile, catnip and lemon balm, which soothe pain, nervousness, tension and headaches and even put an over-stimulated, child to sleep.

My honest answer is I do not know if it is too strong but I would think it is indicated for young adults and adults it is not the right stuff for a headache for a 6 year old. Call your pharmacist maybe they can give you an exact answer on the strength. But personnally I would air on the side of precaution and not give it to a child. I am sorry if this is not a more of the yes or no answer that you were looking for but I have been in your position when you do not have the tylenol and motrin in the house when you need it. And you heart goes out to the little one who does not feel well. Good Luck I hope the little one feels better soon. I hope this helped a little.
