Question: When to give Tylenol after Triaminic in a 3 year old?

 SCK - Fri Feb 22, 2008 2:19 pm

I gave my 3 year old daughter some Triminic daytime cold and cough medicine about 2 hours ago. She just got hit with a high fever and I was wondering if I can give her Tylenol now, or do i need to wait for the 4 hour mark when the Triaminic wears off?

User avatar Hello,
I'm afraid we are not available online 24/7 so when you need fast answers such as this you should call your physician, pharmacist, or hospital.

Since Triaminic does not contain Tylenol or acetaminophen, you can give these simulataneously. Cold medications should not be given to babies under age 2 unless under a physician's care.

Best wishes.
