Safety and Dosing

Children's medicines are formulated to deliver the right amount of medicine to your little one. No matter the medicine or brand, always read and follow the label on the bottle before giving a dosage.

Only the dosing device provided with the product should be used to measure the proper amount of medicine.

Do not use more than one product containing acetaminophen at the same time. Ask your healthcare professional about dosages for children under 2 years of age.

For more information on administering children's medication, see our guide below or ask your pediatrician.

If possible, use weight to dose, otherwise use age.

How does Ellywell work?

Ellywell Children's Pain Reliever and Fever Reducer contains the active ingredient acetaminophen. It works by elevating the body's overall pain threshold, so you feel less pain, and lowers your fever by helping your body eliminate excess heat.

 

What is the definition of a fever?

A fever is the body’s response to a disease characterized by a rise in body temperature. A rectal temperature at or above 100.4⁰F, an oral temperature at or above 99.4⁰F, or an axillary temperature at or above 99⁰F is usually considered the threshold for a fever.
