What should you do when your child is sick and is unable to take medications orally? For example, when your child has a fever and is vomiting. Acetaminophen is available over-the-counter in a formulation called FeverAll in a suppository form.

At what age can I use an acetaminophen suppository?

FeverAll is available in three distinct strengths and can be used in babies beginning at 6 months of age.

When would I use an acetaminophen suppository?

You can ask your pediatrician if FeverAll is an option at your child’s next well child visit. And remember the next time your child can’t take a medication orally, you do have another option.
