My Mood:
For myself I use Tylenol for fever and ibuprofen for pain/inflammation and that's the way I use it for my kids too and it seems to work. I'm sure everyone responds differently.

Re: Ibuprofen or Acetaminophen for fever?

Our go-to is always ibuprofen. Tylenol just doesn't seem to work as well for us.

Yes, basically they are two completely different meds and work in different ways so people respond differently. I've always found ibuprofen to work better/last longer but for really stubborn fevers, alternating the two gives awesome results. The most important part is to be careful with dosing and frequency
