This is especially true for children because the right dose of acetaminophen depends on its age and weight.

You should never give your child:
-an adult product if they're younger than age 12
-more than the recommended dose in a 24-hour period
-more than one medication that contains acetaminophen at the same time, such as:
-a pain reliever
-cold and flu medicine
