No. My son is 7-- almost 8 and passes for 11. If a regular children's dose of tylenol doesn't work for him trying giving him a different medication that is still children's but may work better for him. Children's tylenol does not work for my son, but children's motrin does so that is what I give him.

I'd check with a doctor, but I think the age is important as well as their size, because how toxic it is depends on the maturity of the liver. I know you have to be really careful with dosage for young children. I know nothing about older children though sorry.
