2.5 hours ago we gave our 3.7 yrs old triaminic night time cold and cough (2.5 ml). Now he has 100.2 f fever and gave him ibuprofen (5ml). Is it safe?

Yes: Always make sure that the ingredients in one drug don't overlap with the other, so you avoid overdosing (classically, it was very easy to overdose on tylenol due to the amount of acetaminophen-containing medications). There does not appear to be overlap between these two. Hope he feels better! ...Read more

I am 31 weeks pregnant can I take nighttime hylands cold and cough to help my cold symptoms so I can sleep?

I am 31 weeks pregnant can I take nighttime hylands cold and cough to help my cold symptoms so I can sleep?

I would say NO: Herbs in Pregnancy is a huge topic. Hylands has about six herbs in it including Goldenseal which is generally considered to be contraindicated in pregnancy as it may cause premature contractions.
Could use Robitussin, (guaifenesin) Hall's cough drops or cepacol lozenges, Vick's plain cough syrup or chicken soup.

hope you feel better soon. ...Read more
