What is Tylenol?

Below you can find some information about what Tylenol is:

  • Tylenol is a medication that contains acetaminophen (or paracetamol in other words) - a substance that is used worldwide to treat pain and fever.
  • The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends that paracetamol can be used to treat fevers in children only if their temperature is higher than 38.5 °C (101.3 °F).
  • This medication can also be used to relieve mild to moderate pain.
  • Paracetamol is particularly useful when nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, such as ibuprofen are contraindicated.

Baby Tylenol dosage - general rules

If you plan to use Tylenol in babies, here are some general rules you should follow:

  • Always use the dosing device that is provided with the product you bought.
  • Only one product with paracetamol should be used at a time.
  • Seek a professional doctor's advice to find the dosing for children who are less than 2 years old.
