Not really, but. .: Check out https://www. Drugs. Com/food-interactions/ibuprofen.html which describes how alcohol & ibuprofen might not agree w/each other.

And of course, monitor yourself for indigestion or change in bowel habits. ...Read more

Can I give a tiny dose of ibuprofen to my 2th month old son. He jus had a circumcision.

Tylenol (acetaminophen) preferable: Ibuprofen may increase chance of bleeding after the circumcision, so it is not advisable. It also causes much more GI distress in babies this young, so I would recommend using Acetaminophen (tylenol) instead. And don't give a tiny dose - give a dose appropriate for your child's weight or you might not as well give it at all. ...Read more

What if a child's fever won't go down even after taking the recommended dose of ibuprofen?

Common issue: The amount of fever generated by a child with a normal immune system is determined by the brain sensors detecting fever triggering particles in the blood. Fever reduction may not occur if the stimulus is intense enough, & does not warrant exceeding the recommended dose or crude measures (ice packs, cold baths, etc.). Concentration on fluid needs & other comfort measures gives more benefit. ...Read more
