Has anyone experienced a side effect from Motrin in children? DD's fever jumped to 104C(40.1C) and I gave her Motrin since Tylenol hasn't been doing a good job. That was around 7.20pm. Her fever gradually came down completely, she was cheerful, ate and drank (she hasn't been eating much). At night she started waking up disoriented, complaining on horrible headache, all sweaty, freaking out. I am taking her to the doctor (it's 6am now) today as this simple cold is turning into something way too long (day 3 of fever).
Any input appreciated. All she complains about is headache. Her throat is clear. Nothing else hurts, just her legs are uncomfortable. No rashes.
