Any NEW Symptoms?: Your child has only had three doses, which means a day and a half at best. Flu symtoms are going to last longer than that, even with the tamiflu. It's not like tylenol (acetaminophen) where the med works an hour later. It just shortens the total length of illness. Don't ignore new or worsening symptoms though - i've had a couple of patients who developed pneumonia or ear infections as complications. Rest, fluid! ...Read more

Have the flu. Just noticed blood in my stool. It's red, not black. Been taking lots of acetaminophen and ibuprofen. Also took tamiflu (oseltamivir).

Red in stool: This is likely a hemorrhoid. Soften the stools with colace (docusate sodium) 100 mg two times a day and use a teaspoon of mineral oil three to four times a day. This should help. You should have this checked by a gastrointestinal specialist. Good luck. ...Read more

Can you take hydroco-tylenol and indomethacin at the same time ?

Yes: No problems doing so.

The question to ask is whether it's all for the same cause of pain - if it is, then what doctors sometimes do is stay with one drug and increase its dose rather than adding another.

However, if they're for two separate causes of pain - like the indomethacin is for gout inflammation and hydrocodone/Tylenol for something else - then having both sounds especially reasonable. ...Read more
