Infant Tylenol Drug Interactions

Isoniazid (Nydrazid)
Taking infant Tylenol and isoniazid together may increase the risk of liver damage. Talk to your child's healthcare provider before using these medications together.
 
Many Cough, Cold, Flu, and Allergy Products
Many of these types of medications contain acetaminophen, the active ingredient of infant Tylenol. Only use one of these products at a time, so that you do not inadvertently give your child too much acetaminophen.
 
Phenobarbital (Luminal)
Phenobarbital can affect the way your child's body handles infant Tylenol, making it both less effective and more toxic. Talk to your child's healthcare provider about using infant Tylenol if your child is taking phenobarbital.
 
Warfarin (Coumadin, Jantoven)
Taking warfarin with infant Tylenol may increase the risk of bleeding. However, this risk is much less than for other non-prescription pain relievers (such as aspirin). Talk with your child's healthcare provider about the best ways to treat pain and fevers in a child that takes warfarin.
 

Final Thoughts on Infant Tylenol Drug Interactions

It is important to watch for acetaminophen in any product, particularly non-prescription products.
