Infant Acetaminophen Dosing Changes

Jun 30, 2011 – Dr. Paul

New infant acetaminophen products will soon be in stores with changes in concentrations and new dosing instructions. For a period of time both the old and the new infant drops will be sold, and it is extremely important that you know which concentration you have and what dose to give your child. The old concentration is 80mg/0.8mL. The new concentration will be 160mg/5mL, the same concentration as for children’s acetaminophen syrup. If you call us for dosing instructions you will need to know which concentration you have before we can help you.
