She has a fever and it hasn't gone down with the Ibuprofen alone. Has a slight cough but no other symptoms. Can I give her acetaminophen only an hour after the motrin?

No I would wait they both are fever reducers depending on the age of the child don't want to over dose them. Usually it's 4 to 6 hours. Are you giving the liquid or the chewables? If the Motrin doesn't work than try the other after 4 to 6 hours.
Yes you can. They work two different ways. If it won't come down and is over 101 she needs to see a dr.
