Can I give gravel and Advil (ibuprofen) at the same time to my 2 year old child?

Can I give gravel and Advil (ibuprofen) at the same time to my 2 year old child?

Huh?: I'm not sure what you were asking. I'm sure you did not mean "gravel". However, for fever or pain, Ibuprofen and acetomenophen respectably are best and tried for many years. However, never give a the same time. I personally never recommend giving naprosyn (naproxen) to a child. You don't ever want to give naprosyn (naproxen) and Ibuprofen together. Combined will increases risk of stomach bleeds and kidney damage. ...Read more

He should be fine!: Mosquito borne disease usually has an incubation period a bit longer than you mentioned. He is also doing well overall without painful and/or swollen joints; sore muscles/aching tendons; extensive skin rashes; tiredness;headaches and swollen lymph nodes. Put 1% Hydrocortisone cream on the bug bites or apply cool compresses. Oral antihistamine like Benadryl (diphenhydramine) 2.5ml could be offerred at night. ...Read more

Any : Any time you have a question about your child getting too much medicine, it's always best to call poison control - they can provide immediate information about the medicine. The number (nationwide) is 1-800-222-1222. Generally we dose medicines for children by their weight - so if your child is about 20 lbs, 1 tsp is a good dose. Likely, your child will be okay, but i still would recommend that you follow the 6 - 8 hour dosing schedule for the future! a lot of doctors recommend alternating Acetaminophen and Ibuprofen - I am not a fan of this. As a mother, when my children are sick with a fever, i can never remember at 3 am what i gave last! i tend to stick with one (ibuprofen) and only use the other (acetaminophen) if my child is having fevers before it's time for the next dose. I hope this helps! good luck. ...Read more

My 2yr old has fever of 102 keeps going up/down gave her infant Advil (ibuprofen) not working can I give it every 4hr instead of 6?

My 2yr old has fever of 102 keeps going up/down gave her infant Advil (ibuprofen) not working can I give it every 4hr instead of 6?

No : Children tend to get high fevers which at times can go to 105. The fever itself is not ususally a concern and it is not necessary to get it under 100 with meds. Temps that rise rapidly can trigger seizures in some children. With temps often come achiness and headaches which contribute to fussiness. The more important thing is to confirm the source of fever is not serious and then provide comfort. ...Read more

I believe my two year old ate an ibuprofen pill that is 200 mg is she going to be okay. She seems fine what should I do?

I believe my two year old ate an ibuprofen pill that is 200 mg is she going to be okay. She seems fine what should I do?

She will be ok: Standard dose of ibuprofen for a child between 24 and 35 pounds is 100 mg. This is safe to take up to 4 times a day, so she has had a double dose with 200 mg, and should be limited to 2 more doses of 100 today if she is ill or has a fever. She may complain of a stomach ache, but unlikely with one dose only. Keeping meds out of reach of children this age can be a challenge, but prevention is key ...Read more

My 2 yearold son, has a fever of 101 i just gave  him some children's Advil, (ibuprofen) when I put the bottle back I noticed that the bottle was expired 9/15. ?

Not a problem: This med will not turn toxic after the listed date, that's just the last time they assure potency. If it seems to be effective it is okay to use for now, but I would pick up a fresh bottle the next time you go shopping. ...Read more

For 8 year old kid throat infection taking antibiotic every 12 hrs I give her Advil (ibuprofen) too for pain ?

For 8 year old kid throat infection taking  antibiotic every 12 hrs I give her Advil (ibuprofen) too for pain ?

Yes, you can give: her Advil or Motrin or Tylenol (acetaminophen) for pain. If she has strep, the antibiotic will take about 24 hours to work, so she will benefit from the pain medication meanwhile. Once the antibiotic starts to work, she shouldn't need the Advil. If she has a viral infection, the antibiotic will not help; then you may need the Advil for longer. Be sure she's drinking plenty of fluids also. ...Read more
