  • Yes. Amoxicillan is an antibiotic, tylenol is a pain reliever. Just make sure you know the proper dosage for the age and weight.

  • Yes. You can also alternate the Tylenol with Ibuprofin if you'd like. Tylenol and Ibuprofin will not cause any harm while on an antibiotic.

  • Yes, you can. Be aware that ammoxicillan can cause diarrhea. If it gets bad, talk to your doctor.
