2yr old & 6mth old given tamiflu (oseltamivir) for the flu & Cheratussin but the 6mth old seems to be n pain can I give him tylnol pain meds ontop of meds they got?
Body aches are frequent symptoms of the flu and this maybe the reason the baby is cranky. If you are giving Acetaminophen (tylenol) to control the fever, this should help. I would stop giving the Cheratussin to both children. You can try Vicks vaporub sparingly on the 2-year-old's chest. Tamiflu (oseltamivir) maybe causing the irritability as well as a possible ear infection.
Get your 6 mo checked again. ...Read more
