Can I give my 15 month old Tylenol for his fever, cetirizine for stuffy nose and azithromycin for antibiotic all together?

If the cetirizine (Zyrtec) is not prescribed by the doctor, do not give this to the child. The azithromycin (Zithromax) is taken early in the morning each day, normally for 5 days. You may give Tylenol (acetaminophen) with each, if needed. Follow the directions on the label for the age or size of the child.
