  • I prefer motrin it just works better for my kids, i dont know why it just does. I have given it for headaches before. It is rare that i do it but it is also rare they have them.

  • i don't give medicines to my kids for minor concerns. don't want the chemicals.

  • I would have to agree with 3ring Motrin is an anti-inflammatory so it helps relieve pressure rather than just doping the kid up like Tylenol tends to do.

  • I useit, i think its the best med for little ones the other meds are a little to strong. Make sure you give the generic kind tho because of the recall they had.

  • My middle son is prone to headaches (as I am) and I give him genaric tylenol, motrin or kids advil (whatever we have in the house). I also try other methods- like taking a warm soaking bath, and rest in a quiet room with a compress.

  • So many recalls for that. I would try a natural product. Google it. "All natural remedies for head aches in children"
