Acetaminophen And Ibuprofen Dosing In Children
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW:
Acetaminophen or ibuprofen are given to decrease your child's pain or fever. They can be bought without a doctor's order. You may be able to alternate acetaminophen with ibuprofen. Ask how much medicine is safe to give your child, and how often to give it. Acetaminophen can cause liver damage if not taken correctly. Ibuprofen can cause stomach bleeding or kidney problems.
