that tylenol and ibuprofen do not work so well anymore? My kids are hardly ever sick, but my son woke up with a headache (he is only 4) then later started running a fever in the 103.2 range. I gave him tylenol. That brought the fever down just slightly and barely took the edge off of the headache in a 3 hour period. So I gave him IB 3 hours after tylenol. Its helped more than tylenol did, but I remember ty and ib bringing fevers down to at least a 99 if not back to normal. Even after 30 minutes and an hour of taking meds his fever is still at 101.5. He is laying down and just covered in a medium thickness blanket. The last 3 or so times my kids have gotten sick (1 time each in a year) their fevers do not come down like they used to. Is that just because they are older? Its frusterating!
