tylenol and dexcom! What medication do you give your children to lower their fever, other than tylenor, I need advice please!..

If they are old enough Motrin (ibuprofen) is ok. Tylenol used to be a bigger problem than it is now. Use the finger stick more when they need Tylenol. I’d rather have an incorrect CGM than an untreated fever.

my son is taking ibuprofen in pills, when it is liquid his sugar goes up, I check it several times a day, with the machine, it’s been 2 days that he take tylenol, and his readings are returning to normal, since I stopped giving it to him

A recent thread in the Facebook G5/G6 user group asked about the impact of Tylenol on G5 accuracy. According to the responses, some people see no impact. If you treat with a Tylenol and test more often you should be OK.

If you’re lucky enough to be using G6, tylenol is AOK!
