Pros:great for sore throat and fever, for adults or kids, yummy flavor

Cons:none

The Bottom Line: I recommend Jr Tylenol Grape Meltaways for children or adults who need to take acetaminophen but do not want to swallow a pill


I had the opportunity to try Jr Tylenol Grape Punch Flavored Meltaways a couple weeks ago when I had a bad sore throat and a stomach ache. I normally take ibuprofen when I have pain but I must have done a number on my stomach as I had severe heartburn so I was afraid to take any Advil and was even afraid to swallow a pill.

I asked my husband to go to the store and find something that was either a quick dissolving strip or a liquid Tylenol because I did not feel I could swallow anything effectively. He brought home the grape flavored Jr  Tylenol and I could not have been happier with his choice.

What are Tylenol Meltaways Chewable Tablets

These are larger sized grape flavored tablets that dissolve in the mouth. They are purple in color and have a good flavor. Each tablet contains 160mg of Tylenol which is also called Acetaminophen

other ingredients: anhydrous citric acid, cellulose acetate, crospovidone, D&C red no. 7 calcium lake, D&C red no. 30 aluminum lake, dextrose excipient, FD&C blue no. 1 aluminum lake, flavor, magnesium stearate, povidone, sucralose

Other Flavors

If you do not like Grape these also come in Bubble Gum Flavor. I am glad my husband brought me the Grape ones. But kids might prefer Bubble Gum.

Directions for Use

For children ages 6-8 (48-59lbs) 2 tablets (320mg)
For children ages 9-10 (60-71lbs) 2 1/2 tablets (400mg)
For children age 11 (72-95lbs) 3 tablets (480mg)

The adult dose of Tylenol is 650-1000mg so if you are an adult the dose of the Tylenol Jr would be 4-6 tablets

All dosing is every 4 to 6 hrs

Place tablets in the mouth one and a time and let them dissolve or chew them. I just let them dissolve.

Do not give more than 5 doses in a 24 hr period.

How well Jr Tylenol Grape worked on my fever and sore throat

I was really pleased with the Grape Flavored Tylenol. I loved the taste and they felt soothing when they went down. I am not sure if this was just me or if they really helped immediately to make my throat feel better. I only took 3 because I tend to react strongly to drugs but I felt that these worked right away. I was wondering if perhaps the medication was being absorbed in my throat since I was letting them melt and go down slowly rather than crunching them up to get in my stomach faster.

I did have a low grade fever and the Tylenol Jr seemed to work for that too.

I will definitely be buying this again and keeping it on hand in case I get another sore throat. This worked great and was easy on my stomach.

Final Thoughts and Rating

Jr Tylenol Grape Flavored Meltaways get a 5 star rating from me. There was nothing I did not like about them and I recommend them for kids and adults.

Thanks for reading my review
