Horrible. It's too strong. My little guy felt worse and threw it all up after I gave it to him. Concerns have been raised with regards to the connection between ibuprofen products such as Motrin, and the potentially fatal skin disease, Stevens Johnson Syndrome. Stevens Johnson Syndrome is a diseases that has been linked to a number of drugs, and at best can cause massive discomfort and pain. The painful struggle and death of nine-year-old Kaitlyn Langstaff is one heartbreaking example of the dangers of Children's Motrin. Kaitlyn's parents have sued the maker of the drug alleging that their daughter's reaction to Children's Motrin left Kaitlyn unable to see, speak or eat and that the manufacturer failed to warn the public of the dangers and possibly fatal reactions. Here is one family's struggle that hits close to home for me, Please visit this site and read! Your kids could be next!

had bad experience

Fever down, but hyper kids Gets the job done. However we cannot use it around bed time unless absolutely necessary because it seems to make my kids hyper.

Love this for reducing my child's fever.

The only medicine that helps when my daughter has a fever. I've tried them all and will only use Motrin going forward.

A life saver when kids aren't feeling well. I really like children's Motrin when my kids aren't feeling well- it allows them to feel so much more comfortable. However, I do prefer the kind without dye whenever possible! According to my kids, they taste the same, so why include the unnecessary dye?

Very good product - works well for fever, pain.

I usually choose Tylenol for my son, but when hes at his worst and has a high fever, I altnernate Tylenol and Motrin about every 4 and 6 hours, leaving 1 hour between each administration; it works wonders!

I much prefer Motrin to Tylenol too! Edited 8/16/2010 to add: And I like all of the different flavors that Motrin offers as well. Definitely check with your doctor about the right dosage first.

4 out of 5, becasue no measurable performance difference over other brands. I will say that the berry flavor is very easy to give to our kids. In order fot the medicine to work, the kids must swallow it. They have done a very nice job with the flavoring of the beryy flavor. Have used this in the infant drops too and it is equaly good.

This is a good product if you know your child will have fever or swelling from shots. It was recommended to me by a pediatrician to give it 1/2 an hour before shots and it will help with the initial pain as well. I've found it to work quite well. Although I only used this method for one child since the others only cried for a split second and stop, and within, literally, a minute we are leaving the office and the babies had smiles again. It always surprises the pediatrician and nurses. LOL It also works well for fever from a cold, and teething. Yet we only use it rarely and have only used teething products a few times in general.

Children's Motrin is one of the two products that helps my son's fever come down fast. He also doesn't have a problem with the taste, which is a huge plus because he just cannot swallow medicine that tastes badly. He will spit it out faster than I can react.

this is a good product.

Loved how quickly it worked. The only complaint I have is that it was like a sugar rush for my daughter. Tylenol always makes her sleepy. Not Motrin. COMPLETE OPPOSITE!!!
