Fact Friday - Infants' Acetaminophen Concentration Change

There has recently been a change in the concentration of Infants' Acetaminophen (i.e. Tylenol). It has changed from 80 mg/0.8 mL to 160 mg/5 mL. This will mean a change in the dosage you are used to giving your infant. Click on the images above to view the old concentration dosages versus the new concentration dosages and be sure you verify which concentration you are giving your child before actually giving it to them.

If you have any questions regarding which dosage you should be giving your child, please feel free to contact the office!

We hope you have a great weekend!
