Can I give my 8 year old son Tylenol for fever if he takes concerta for ADHD. He weighs 50 lbs.

There are no direct drug interactions between Concerta (methylphenidate) and Tylenol (acetaminophen). They may be given together. The daily maximum of acetaminophen for a child the size of your son is 1200mg.
