Can I give my 5 yr old whom has been diagnosed with strep throat childens Advil (ibuprofen) along with his prescribed antibiotics? He also was prescribed ondansetron for nausea.
Certainly. There is not a problem with taking all of those medications together.
It . It is safe to give your child Ibuprofen (children's advil) or Acetaminophen for pain and fever control while they are on antibiotics and ondansetron. Just make sure they eat a little something when you give ibuprophen since taking it on an empty stomach can lead to stomach upset.
