can my 8 year old take Claritin and ibuprofen together? Not sure if her runny nose is due to allergies, but she has a fever.

Not allergy

Fever
A young child doesn't get a fever from an allergic reaction. Tylenol or a non steroidal antiinflammatory can help to reduce fever. Antihistamines work well for allergic conditions but not colds or viruses.

Is it safe to give my 2 year old Motrin after already giving her Claritin earlier in the day?

Yes

Claritin
You didn't mention what problem your child is having, but, in general, Motrin (ibuprofen), a pain reliever and antiinflammatory does not have any cross reaction with Claritin, an antihistamine.

Dr. Scott J. Diede answered:

I gave my 2 year old son 5ml of children's Claritin 12 hours apart instead of 24 hours apart. Do I need to call his doctor? Is this a problem?

Call poison control

Claritin
He should be OK. To be on the safe side, it would not hurt to call poison control. They often have very helpful information on accidental drug ingestions or overdoses. In adults, overdoses of Claritin can cause excess sleepiness, headache and a rapid heart rate.

Can I give my two year old children's tylenol and children's claritin at the same time?

Yes

Claritin
The products will not interfere with one another.You might want to make sure the kids stomach settles with one before you give the other as sometimes the mixture of tastes will cause them to spit it out.

5 1/2 yr old takes children's claritin every AM but is still plagued with allergic cough - worse at night. Ok to dose with Benadryl in the pm?

Yes

Allergic_rhinitis
Be sure to speak with your pediatrician or allergy-immunology specialist regarding an appropriate dose for your child's weight. Often times severe allergies are treated with antihistamines alone like claritin/nondrowsy and benadryl together. Other options are available if benadryl doesn't work. Sedation and dry mouth are common side effects. Consider saline spray and environmental changes.

But you will need to see your doctor to get it. Claritin does not work on infection of any kind. There may be some OTC acetic acid -containing ear drops which may help.

Can I give my 2 year old a fever reducer and a coks medicine at the same time?

Clarify

Fever-adult
what is coks medicine. If you mean cold medicines, cold medicines are not recommended for children as they do not work and children can be overdosed on cold medicines. Use a coll mist vaporizer and keep them hydrated with fluids.You can use a saline nose spray to loosen congestion.

Should i take my 2 year old to the doctor if shes been running a fever of 103 the past 2 days?

FEVER

Fever
At this age common cause is viral; associated symptoms: runny nose, cough, malaise, refusal to eat, some headache, body ache, etc. If these are not there, look for any burning urine (possible UTI). Too much headache, vomiting or any worsening- will need immediate medical attention. Make sure she drinks enough fluid, give Acetaminophen/Tylenol 160 mg every four hour for fever 101 or above.
