When fever strikes during a cold, flu or other minor viral illness, over-the-counter fever reducers bring down body temperature quickly and increase comfort. We have a full selection of time-tested and doctor-recommended fever reducers ready for shipment right to your doorstep. There are several well-known brands of fever reducers available at Walgreens.com including Advil, Aleve and Tylenol.
Medications for reducing fever
Aspirin, acetaminophen, ibuprofen, and naproxen sodium are all available without a prescription, and all are effective for reducing fever. We offer these potent fever reducers in tablet and syrup form, alone or combined with other ingredients such as decongestants and antihistamines that combat different symptoms that may accompany a fever. We also have a full selection of fever reducers for children, in the form of syrups and suppositories that are intended for children of different ages.
Choosing fever reducers
A household with children should have acetaminophen or ibuprofen syrup or chewable tablets on hand at all times, as they are extremely effective for fighting fevers as well as aches and pains in children. Adults can choose between fever reducers based on ibuprofen or acetaminophen, as well as tablets that contain regular or extra-strength doses of aspirin or naproxen. Your doctor may have a specific recommendation for fever reducers according to your particular medical history. Products that contain decongestants and antihistamines along with fever reducers provide extra comfort when treating colds or flu, and they are available for both adults and children. All versions of Sudafed treat nasal congestion, but some also act as pain relievers and fever reducers. Some fever reducers are available in capsule, caplet or tablet form. Choose whichever form you and your family finds the most comfortable to swallow, and remember to keep fever-reducing syrup on hand for the youngest members of your family.
