Acetaminophen Dosage Chart

Dosages may be repeated every four hours, but should not be given more than five times in twenty-four hours. (Note: Milliliter is abbreviated as ml; 5ml equals 1 teaspoon [tsp]. Don't use household teaspoons, which can vary in size.)

We do not recommend using aspirin to treat a simple fever.
