Are there any group thoughts on rectal tylenol at the higher dose ranges
of 30-40mg/kg?
Specifically regarding frequency, or infrequency, at these higher doses?
 
As with many others we are deluged with kids with extremely high temps
(41.8'C) - I wonder regarding the pros (higher serum levels - perhaps at
"therapeutic levels") and cons of those higher doses (?hepatic
consequences, chronic toxicity).
