    OTC Teething Medication Questions

    Hi all!

    I just moved from NYC about 10 days ago and am just settling in. I have a teething 10-month old baby and would like to know what medications are equivalent to what I use in the US. Right now, when needed, I'm using Motrin infant drops and infant Tylenol. What can I get here that is similar?

    Thanks in advance for all of your help!

    Liz

    You'll get Paracetamol and Ibuprofen. Have a read through this from OT&P

    Managing Fever in young Children

    Drs usually dispense the meds for infants so you won't find them on the shelves, but some of the smaller pharmacies will sell them.

    Also have a look at Bumps to Babes and Tiny Footprints for teething gels.
