Tylenol vs Motrin Informative - Fever reducer for kids
Since it's the flu season I have had the pleasure of helping to nurse my grandkids back to health. Both the 7 month old and the 6 year old have suffered some of the same ailments. The major one being a high fever. As the parents followed all the doctors advice with prescription medications they also said to give tylenol or motrin. I gave childrens tylenol to my 6 year old as he had a 103 fever. It seems to stay at that temp without going up any more. My son and his new wife picked up my grandson and had picked up some childrens motrin. Almost immedeitly the fever went down and almost back to normal. My Daughter has also had a problem with her 6 month old not being able to keep a fever down. She bought infants motrin and got the same results. It has been a very terrible flu season for all in this area especially the children. I did not have childrens motrin when my kids were young but I can see what a wonderful tool it can be for parents when there is a fever that wants to hang on. Combined with a doctors visit and the correct prescriptions, childrens/infants motrin is a must have for the medicine chest. Hope your all in good health this flu season part of the year.
