Tylenol dosage for infants and children


Standardized dosage

In 2011, regulations standardized the liquid concentration of Tylenol at 160 milligrams (mg) per 5 milliliters (ml), avoiding the confusion associated with prescribing Tylenol to children. You no longer have to adjust the dosage for babies who can use concentrated drops and older children who use less concentrated syrup.

Pharmaceutical companies have not accepted all the recommendations of the experts. For example, many people wanted Tylenol to include dosage instructions for babies 6 months and older. Instead, these labels, even on Tylenol Liquid Infant Suspension , still say, "If your child is younger than 2 years old, be sure to ask your doctor for the correct dose."

Hopefully, your doctor or pediatrician has advised you on the correct dosage when you go for your check-up so that you don't have to panic in the middle of the night when you need to give your child the correct dose of Tylenol. …
