My 22-month-old is taking amoxicillin for strep throat. Is it safe to give her Tylenol as well for the fever?

Yes. It is safe to combine Tylenol with amoxicillin.

I suggest you speak with your pharmacist first, who can help you choose the best product and tell you how much Tylenol to give your child based on how much your child weighs.
