A toddler who is 11 mmonths old, got an influenza vaccine that is reccomended for 36 months and older , is that dangerous for the 11mo. Old?

A toddler who is 11 mmonths old, got an influenza vaccine that is reccomended for 36 months and older ,  is that dangerous for the 11mo. Old?

No: The only difference between the vaccine for under 36 months and older children is the dose (0.25ml vs 0.5ml) and under 36 mo vaccine has no preservative, it is not uncommon to use them interchangeably, with the appropriate dose age adjustment. I wouldn't worry. You did the right thing in getting your baby vaccinated. Influenza in infants can be very serious. ...Read more

I've been having nosebleeds; 1 a day, for the past 4-5 days. The last 1 was severe. Recently had a typhoid & influenza vaccine, is this related?

I've been having nosebleeds; 1 a day, for the past 4-5 days. The last 1 was severe. Recently had a typhoid & influenza vaccine, is this related?

Nose bleed: Most nose bleeds can be attributed to severe dryness of the nasal mucosa causing capillaries to break. This dryness can be caused by allergies. I do not think there is a relationship between the vaccines and nose bleed. Over the counter nasal mists can help in preventing further nose bleeds. If continues seek consultation with your primary doctor. ...Read more

That depends on: How serious it is and what drugs or medications were taken. Overdoses are often treated initially in an emergency room. The person is monitored and often they have intravenous fluids. If they stopped breathing - a tube can be inserted to assist with breathing.

Can i drink alchol/beer while taking Doxycycline 100mg & fluconal(fluzone) 200 mg?

Can i drink alchol/beer while taking Doxycycline 100mg & fluconal(fluzone) 200 mg?

Avoid alcohol: Fluconal is the trade name for fluconazole, an anti-fungal, in some countries. (Fluzone is influenza VACCINE). Some reports suggest that adding fluconazole to doxycycline can synergistically increase the anti-fungal effects of doxycycline. Most important is to avoid if you have liver disease. Since alcohol also affects the liver, I would abstain or drink very little alcohol while taking these meds ...Read more
