Recently, one of the instructors at my nursing school told us that recent research had suggested that the max dose of tylenol should be less than the now recommended 4000mg. She did not state her source, and i cannot find any research that supports this. But my main question is this: In pediatrics is it safer to give Motrin rather than Tylenol for fever because of the adverse effects on the liver, or are the adverse effects about the same? I would just like some clarification on this subject or a nudge in the right direction to research it myself.
Thanks in advance!
