My son is 8 years old, but he is 5' tall and 105lbs. He fits into the weight range for adult dosing, but I wonder if his liver is mature enough to handle that much. I have given him 325mg for a headache, with reasonable results, but wasn't sure if that will be sufficient to treat a fever. Thanks!
That is a very good observation. It would take a long time of continued use to do any damage. I hope his headaches are not happening all the time.
If it's due to a flu or just a cold I see no problem with giving him a dose based on his weight for the fever as well.
I would watch these headaches and make sure they are not symptoms of something more serious like migranes, that are treated with a whole different medicine approach. Good luck... I hope he feels better!
