Infant Tylenol

Side Effects

As with any medicine, side effects are possible with infant Tylenol. However, not everyone who takes the drug will experience side effects. In fact, most infants tolerate it quite well. If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or can easily be treated by you or your child's healthcare provider.
 
Serious side effects are less common. Possible serious side effects of infant Tylenol include, but are not limited to:
 
  • Allergic reactions
  • Liver damage
  • Ulcers or bleeding in the digestive tract.

  • Liver disease, such as cirrhosis, liver failure, or hepatitis
  • G6PD deficiency (a certain enzyme deficiency)
  • Any allergies, including allergies to food, dyes, or preservatives.
     
Make sure to tell your child's healthcare provider about all other medicines your infant is taking, including prescription and non-prescription medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements.
