Acetaminophen found safe for kids with asthma
from MedPage Today
Acetaminophen did not increase the rates of asthma attacks among young children with mild asthma who were given the drug to reduce fever or pain when compared with ibuprofen, a small randomized trial found. Among participants, ages 12 months to 59 months, who received a median of 5.5 doses (interquartile range, 1.0 to 15.0) of trial medication, there were no differences in the rates of asthma attacks between groups of children with mild, persistent asthma who were given either acetaminophen or ibuprofen on an as-needed basis for fever or discomfort.
