I've been on 800MG of ibuprofen for 4 weeks due to severe back pain (herniated discs) I'm wondering how long I need to be off of it before drinking?

DON'T: 800 mg is an enormous dose and ibuprofen is a propionic acid. You would most likely irritated your stomach lining or bleed form your stomach from ulceration. Bye-bye to alcohol for at least 4 months. Please clarify how many 800mg tablets you are taking, or is your daily intake only 800 mg?

Doctor can evaluate: If a parent is not sure when to take a 1 year old to the doctor, she can call the doctor's office. Some doctor's have their patients come in on the first couple of sick days, but it depends on the experience of the parents and on what the child is doing. "very sleepy", "very fussy", or otherwise acting strangely, especially when the temperature is not very high, means the child can be evaluated.

What is "it"?: You have not given us any thing that could be diagnostic or even a clue as to the cause of your fever. Without knowing the cause your question is completely impossible to answer. Fever is a symptom. Not a diagnosis.
