Mixing meds: The Benadryl (diphenhydramine) may not have the resultant effect that you think it will have when mixed with the other medications that you are taking. It would be better to just relax in a quiet environment, take nice easy breaths and let things come down. If necessary give your doctor a call. ...Read more

Five month old had been on Omnicef (cefdinir) for almost 48 hrs and still irritable and restless at night. Does this mean it's not working?

Five month old had been on Omnicef (cefdinir) for almost 48 hrs and still irritable and restless at night. Does this mean it's not working?

Not necessarily: Irritability in an infant with otitis is related to the pressure caused by the fluid/infection and the discomfort caused by fever.I find the omnicef a day or so slower than amoxicillin or Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) in producing symptom change.It relates to the way the med works and the difficulty getting it into the middle ear muck through the blood.I'd expect the fever gone soon,if not, call in for phone followup ...Read more
