4yr old has middle ear infection with a fever of 38.9C. Also chesty cough but chest is clear. On amoxicillin today & panadol (acetaminophen). When worry about temp?

If temp is >40.5C: contact your doctor if it doesn't respond to another dose of Panadol (acetaminophen) and cool compresses within 30 minutes. Fever is the body's way of fighting infection, and in it self is not harmful at lower numbers except your child will feel uncomfortable and is more likely to get dehydrated if not drinking enough fluids.

I have strep throat and I'm on amoxicillin, I took Tylenol (acetaminophen) to reduce my fever, melatonin to help me sleep and Claritin because allergies. Will I die?

No, not today: On this earth, we are all born, live a short while (in geological time), and die. That said, people in the U.S. don't die from strep throat... unless one is the unluckiest woman in the county and gets some sort of expanding abscess in the back of the throat. Typical doses of Tylenol, (acetaminophen) Amoxicillin, melatonin, and Claritin don't kill people either. So, that means today is not the day to go. ...Read more

My mom has a severe sinus infection. She wants to know if she can take one mucinex sinus max night, her prescribed amoxicillin pill and a Tylenol (acetaminophen) pm. ?

Drop the Tylenol (acetaminophen) pm: As the mucinex (guaifenesin) sinus max contains acetaminophen too (active ingredient in Tylenol), you don't want to duplicate the dosage, and avoid mucinex (guaifenesin) sinus-max combination if hypertensive (contains phenylephrine), you can take just plain mucinex (guaifenesin) instead to loosen the mucus, read the labels carefully, good luck ...Read more
