I have an 8yo 56lbs.. Is it ok to give him cold medicine for congestion and ibuprofen for headache at the same time?
Generally yes: As long as the cold medicine does not contain ibuprofen, combining the 2 should be ok. That being said, many pediatricians do not like cold medicines for young children. They're not very effective, and the side effects are relatively stronger--anti-congestion meds are generally better at stimulating the heart or making the children alternately drowsy or hyper than they are at treating the cold. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

What pain medications are available for a person that is allergic to tylenol (acetaminophen) and motrin?
It depends: The answer depends on the symptoms associated with the tylenol (acetaminophen) and if the Motrin reaction extends to other nsaids (aspirin etc).
