How long after giving Benadryl can I give Tylenol to a 2 1/2 y/o??

I gave my son Benadryl about 2 hrs ago and now he has a fever. Can I give him Tylenol (or Mortin) now or should I wait for the 4 hrs after giving him the Motrin?

  • Thanks for your reply. I gave him just Benadryl. I called the pharmacist and got the OK to give the Tylenol. (I added the Motrin thinking it might be better to give than Tylenol giving the fact that I had given him Benadryl already).
