Is It Safe To Take Hydrocodone To Reduce The Pain And Tenderness Of Mono
Can a strep test also determine mono? Can someone have mono and only have fever and red throat without it being sore? He's on 2 antibiotics for a wound he had a week ago (been on them for 6 days) and has had a negative strep test, but has ran a fever fro
Infectious mononucleosis is caused by the epstein barr virus (ebv) and acute infection usually involves sore throat, fever, enlarged lymph nodes (including the spleen), and tiredness. Different people will have a different severity of mono symptoms - some get very ill, some do not get sick at all. It is spread through saliva and close contact which is why it's been known as the "kissing disease". Since it is a virus, it is not treated with antibiotics. There is a blood test available that can test for mono infection and antibodies. The test will tell you if he has ever had it, if he has it now, or if he had it in the past and is now immune to it - all helpful information. A strep test does not give information about any other infections - just strep.

Norovirus and mono got me. Gastritis for the last 2 months. Some stomach tenderness. Found a little IM in stomach on scope. Take Prilosec. Thoughts?
Sorry about yr GI: If you really have a gastritis (inflamed stomach) the antacid Prilosec that should help. About your viral infections with Norovirus and Infectious Mono virus we have no antiviral drugs for those and you will just have to endure. The people who do worst are the very young (infants) and the very old (over 75). You will do fine. ...Read more
Under my rib cage looks swollen on my left side. I have symptoms of mono but no sore throat or fever. Going for CT scan tomorrow. Anything I can take?
I'm developing a sore throat, can I take keflex for infection and norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) for pain? Are there any interactions? Until I have time to get to the dr on wed
Don't take them!: There's no interaction between cephalexin (Keflex) and hydrocodone with acetaminophen (Norco), but you definitely shouldn't take them. Sore throats are almost always due to viruses, which cephalexin won't help at all; it would just make it harder for your doctor ro diagnose you. And a narcotic is giant overkill for a "developing" sore throat. Plain acetaminophen (e.g. Tylenol etc) is enough. ...Read more
I was diagnosed with mono 2 months ago. Just today, the lymph nodes in my right armpit have become swollen and slightly tender. Is this normal?

Unusual, but yes: I personally have had a case of mono when I was 15, and was so fatigued with achy nodes that missed about 4 months of 10th grade. But this should be further evaluated. R liver function tests still elevated, is there enlargement of liver or spleen, are other nodes internally involved. Have check with internist or infectious disease specialist. You may need further test, eg a lymph node biopsy. ...Read more
