Infant Acetaminophen Drug Interactions

Isoniazid (Nydrazid)
Taking infant acetaminophen and isoniazid together may increase the risk of liver damage. Talk to your child's healthcare provider before using these medications together.
 
Many Cough, Cold, Flu, and Allergy Products
Many of these types of medications contain acetaminophen, the active ingredient of infant acetaminophen. Only use one of these products at a time, so that you do not inadvertently give your child too much acetaminophen.
 
Phenobarbital (Luminal)
Phenobarbital can affect the way your child's body handles infant acetaminophen, making it both less effective and more toxic. Talk to your child's healthcare provider about using infant acetaminophen if your child is taking phenobarbital.
 
Warfarin (Coumadin, Jantoven)
Taking warfarin with infant acetaminophen may increase the risk of bleeding. However, this risk is much less than for other non-prescription pain relievers (such as aspirin). Talk with your child's healthcare provider about the best ways to treat pain and fevers in a child who is taking warfarin.
