Pros: Works fast
Infant Advil grape flavored fever reducing drops were recommended to me for use on my 18 month old son. He had developed an ear infection on a Saturday. Unfortunately our doctor is closed on weekends so the best thing we could do was to go to the pharmacy until Monday seeing as how doctors no longer prescribe antibiotics for ear infections. The emergency room would not have been able to do much of any thing for him, and he seemed very uncomfortable.
On top of having an ear infection. My son ended up also having a fever. This is why the pharmacy recommended the Infant Advil grape flavored fever reducing drops for my son. They claimed that it would be faster than infants Motrin, which is what he usually is prescribed by our family doctor for fevers.

How much it costs and where to buy it:
The Infant Advil grape flavored fever reducing drops can be purchased at mostly any drug store, supermarket and even department stores, such as Walmart. However, due to the closeness of it. I often get the Infant Advil grape flavored fever reducing drops from the local Walgreens Pharmacy near me here in Rhode Island. The price varies by merely pennies no matter where you go for it. I pay only $5.29 per bottle of Infant Advil grape flavored fever reducing drops.
How it worked for my son:
As I mentioned the first time he used it was to help with an ear infection pain, and also for his fever that went along with it. With in the first 20 minutes I noticed my son perk up. He stopped screaming and tugging at his ear. This told me that he was not feeling as much discomfort as before he had taken the Infant Advil grape flavored fever reducing drops. Also with in the first 30 minutes or so the fever went from 101.2 to 98.9. A very nice change I might add.
Since then I have used it for fevers twice. Once when my son was sick with the flu and the other when he had a fever with his Chicken Pox. My doctor said that if this works so well on him, she will not be recommending the Mortin for him any longer. Motrin used to take twice as long and not work as well as the Infant Advil grape flavored fever reducing drops.
To be honest I have no idea what it tastes like. But my son sure seems to like it. In fact, he cries after he is done and asks for more! He does not quite get that it is not a treat. But he does like it very much. That is some thing I appreciate about it because the orange Motrin he was on before he did not like at all. We would lose half the dose with him spitting it out. He never spits out the Infant Advil grape flavored fever reducing drops.
The Infant Advil grape flavored fever reducing drops work fast and effectively on my son. I am glad the pharmacy recommended this medicine to our family. I like that my son likes it. I enjoy the fact that it does exactly what it claims to as well. But the best part is that it is for multiple things. We did not have to buy one for a ear ache and the other for a fever. Both were in one bottle. That is the best. I do very highly recommend the Infant Advil grape flavored fever reducing drops.
