If you have phlegm that is greenish in color, see a physician for antibiotics. Good luck. ...Read more

How long should I wait to breastfeed if I took alka seltzer plus? (night time) It has 500 mg aspirin! How long will it take to be out of my breastmilk

Wouldn't worry: If baby is otherwise healthy I would continue to feed and just avoid aspirin in the future. We don't like to expose kids with any viral illness because of its association with Reye syndrome under those conditions. Otherwise it is just there, and a relative transfer of 2-10% occurs. If sick, pump and dump for 8 hours and it should be fine thereafter. ...Read more

Hopefully: Hopefully you called the poison control center or received some other advice.

Plavix and tylenol (acetaminophen) (acetamenophen) are two totally different medications. Assuming your friend is otherwise healthy without a significant drinking history, taking a mildly excessive amount of tylenol (acetaminophen) one time probably will not hurt her. However, she should abstain from tylenol (acetaminophen) containing products for the rest of the day. ...Read more
