Alternating Tylenol and Motrin?
Hey ladies. Dane’s doctor’s office is closed and I can not for the life of me remember the timing when alternating Tylenol and Motrin.

Could someone please remind me?

Thank you! =)

I am not a lady, but you can give a dose of tylenol then a dose of motrin 2 hours later then tylenol again 2 hours after that…making the doses of tylenol 4 hours apart….

check the temp regularly, too much tylenol or motrin is not good for n infant.

Answer by Sarah H
Every 2-3 hours.

Answer by Riyen’s Mom
Well I was at the doctor today and she told me every 4 hours. The reason for this is that tylenol lasts a good 4 hours while Motrin lasts a good 6-8 hours.

A lot of people are saying 2 hours and that seems really wild to me considering motrin is ever 6-8 hours and you’d be giving him Motrin every 4 hours.

You can always call a pharmacist to make sure, but my son has an ear infection and I went in today and they said 4.

One of my daughter’s used to get high fevers often and her pediatrician recomended that I did this. He told me to alternate every three hours.
