Children's Tylenol Drug Information

Children ages 2 to 11 can take Children's Tylenol® (children's acetaminophen) to relieve pain and reduce a fever. This nonprescription medicine comes in the form of both a liquid and orally disintegrating tablets. Its effects in the body are not entirely understood, even though this medication has been around for a long time. It may block pain signals in nerves or prevent them from forming in the first place.
 
One of the advantages of Children's Tylenol is that it is not related to aspirin, so children with chickenpox can take it. In addition, many children who are sensitive or allergic to aspirin can take this drug without problems. However, if your child has a liver condition or a certain enzyme deficiency, this medication may not be appropriate.
