My daughter has 104, 03 of fever. I gave her ibuprofen and acetaminophen but it doesn't drop. Should I take her to the emergency room?

My daughter has 104, 03 of fever. I gave her ibuprofen and acetaminophen but it doesn't drop. Should I take her to the emergency room?

Wait a few minutes: If you are sure you are giving an appropriate dose based on her weight, (not age) of the two different meds, and you have waited a full 45-60 minutes and the temperature does not go below 103 after the med, then you may want to consider it. While 104 is quite high, it's not deadly, but does need evaluation within 24 hours. I would recommend you see her regular doctor tomorrow - and lots of fluid.

Is it True that you can't take Ibuprofen while on Zoloft (sertraline)? I only take it when I have a cold. Can I take it? I don't have acetaminophen. Any dangers?

Is it True that you can't take Ibuprofen while on Zoloft (sertraline)? I only take it when I have a cold. Can I take it? I don't have acetaminophen. Any dangers?

Possible interaction: Although there is a possible interaction that doesn't necessarily mean they can't be used together. 'Using sertraline together with ibuprofen may increase the risk of bleeding. The interaction may be more likely if you are elderly or have kidney or liver disease.' (http://www. Drugs. Com/interactions-check. Php? Drug_list=1310-0, 2057-1348)

Have it evaluated: At four a recurrent pattern of cough may be an early indicator of mild asthma. Write down all you recall about this pattern & take it in & review this history with the doc during a visit. A referral for some pulmonary function studies may be needed to sort this out.
