My 2 month old son eats 4-5oz of formula every 2 hours during the day. When should he start eating more or how long should be keep eating this amount?
Depends on age & wt: Most infants will tend to increase their intake over the first few weeks and then level off between 28-35 oz/ 24 hours until they weigh about 15 pounds, and then additional intake is needed. For most babies, this is usually around 4-6 months, so solids are added then. Some 2 month old infants will take 7 oz x 5 bottles a day, others 4 oz x 8/ day. If your baby is happy and growing, no worry. ...Read more

Hello. : Hello. I can't diagnose the cause of your symptoms. However, since you are getting the symptoms when supine it brings up possibilities like post nasal drip or gastrointestinal reflux. You may wish to sleep with your head raised. This can be done with firm pillows or by placing an object under the mattress. It is important to hydrate well, to allow you to expel mucus. Something like tessalon perles is very simple and can cut down on coughing from post nasal drip. Sometimes codiene is prescribed for uncontrollable coughs. If this doesn't resolve soon, consider seeing your physician to determine the cause and from there can work on solutions. Take care. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Should i maintain the time gap while I am having antibiotic, if it is 3 times a day, is that mean 8 hrs exactly gap or 1 or 2 hrs before and after is ok?
Probably OK: The reason for the spacing is to maintain levels above the minimum bacteriostatic concentration for the particular organism being treated. Since Amoxicillin has a half-life of about one hour it should actually be taken every 4 hrs at minimum, but for a normally immune host it should be ok. If you are treating acute bronchitis this is probably worthless anyway since over 95% are due to a virus. ...Read more

Prescribed methadone for pain every 8 hours, is it required to take every 8 hours If I would be asleep or needs to be 3x day to work?
Once a day can work: Methadone has a very long half life and is commonly given as a once a day dose. I'm a bit surprised you're taking methadone , but also mentioned Percocet as current medication. Both drugs are strong narcotics and not frequently prescribed together except in difficult pain management cases. I wonder if you have developed an addiction to narcotics.
