Paracetamol (Is this called Tylenol in the USA??) give half normal dose according to age early morning
on as near as normal day as possible (when child is not poorly / has temperature) and watch for
Faiure to urinate-for most of the day albeit drinking to beat the band.

Please note These effects can be delayed for a day or two in some children.
A post regarding Celexa anti depressant drug given to ASD child prompted me to write this warning as
ASD children may not be able to tolerate certain drugs so please be aware and check.
I can only wonder - given that Paracetamol is given to many children when they are poorly, what is it doing
to those who do react to it, maybe un-be-known to their parents- when they are poorly??
