  • If that is the only way to get your child to take it no. Have you tried the children's tylenol rapid tabs? My 2 year old won't take liquid tylenol but will take the chewable tablets.

  • yes because you dont really know how much of the dose she actually got

  • i wouldn't do it, get her used to meds now if she must take them. why are you giving it to her? if you must do it in the cup, only give her a few sips so you know she is getting the tylenol right away.

  • I wouldn't say it's *bad*, but there has to be a better way to get her to take it. What if she didn't drink the whole cup? Or if another child got ahold of her cup

  • No I don't think its bad. Just make sure you aren't putting more than the recommended dose in there and make sure that no one else drinks out of her cup.

  • If thats is how they will atke it then go for it. I would make sure to use a small amount of juice to make sure they drink it all.
