If she is having average weight & with Tylenol 160mg/5 ml, you have given a higher dose according to her age.However, it is not a toxic dose.Please omit the next dose.If she is having fever or pain, you can give her motrin instead of Tylenol.I hope this information will be helpful.If you have any query, please feel free to ask.If you are happy with my answer please click on the Excellent/Good rating.
