Thank you for your question.

I am Dr. Su S. and I will try my best to help you.

How is her body weight?

How much mg Tylenol is in 5 ml of syrup you gave?

Expert:  Dr. Su S. replied 1 year ago.

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.
