My 9 month old has a fever @ 103. Have Advil (ibuprofen) & dropped only 1 degree after 2 hours. Is this normal or cause for concern to call the dr?
Fever: Fever is a symptom not a disease. The response to an drug like tylenol (acetaminophen) or advil does not have any predictive value. What you should be asking your self is what else is happening? Rash, vomiting, diarrhea, pain, etc and concentrate on that and if that is bothering your infant, then call your dr. If not you can wait and see if the temp resolves within a day or so. If u are worried, call. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I am nursing a one month old.can I take Advil cold and Sinus for a cold? If so, can I take it with Tylenol 3? I take one for back pain until I do xray
Advil Cold and Sinus: Advil Cold and Sinus contains pseudoephedrine which decreases breast milk supply. Avoid Advil Cold and Sinus while breastfeeding. Also avoid Tylenol #3 as it contains codeine which passes into breast milk. Okay to take plain tylenol or advil for pain.

My daughter is 12months old. She's coughing and weezing mildy. Should i be worried? I've been giving her infant's advil (ibuprofen).
M.D. visit: If she is coughing and wheezing these may be signs of asthma. I would advise an evaluation and possible treatment with albuterol depending on her exam at the physician's office. As the other answer indicated if she is eating well and not in distress, she is still able to breathe comfortably and probably won't need steroids.

Huh?: I'm not sure what you were asking. I'm sure you did not mean "gravel". However, for fever or pain, Ibuprofen and acetomenophen respectably are best and tried for many years. However, never give a the same time. I personally never recommend giving naprosyn (naproxen) to a child. You don't ever want to give naprosyn (naproxen) and Ibuprofen together. Combined will increases risk of stomach bleeds and kidney damage. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
