Can I Give My 3 Year Old Son Mucinex For His Cough And Tylenol For His Fever?

Answer

There are infant formulations for both these products. I couldn't say whether they should be combined in infants. I can tell you that the Drugs.com Drug Interaction program does not find any harmful interactions between these two drugs for adults. They do say, though, that they may not have captured all the interactions and you should always check with your doctor.
