Fever, throat infection, headache, body ache during pregnancy. Medicine and its dosage? - Online Doctor Chats
How can I help you?
I am 26 weeks pregnant.
I am also feeling a mild body and head ache this evening. On checking I found my temperature to be 100.4
I am 33 years old.
My throat has been sore since morning as well.
Yes to taking Dolo?
I am sorry. Yes, Dolo 650 is paracetamol containing drug and is very safe at this time.
You can take them for fever.
What would you recommend if that fails to lower the temp - how long can I wait untill I must visit the hospital?
Also, how many hours gap between 2 doses of Dolo 650?
Dolo 650 can be repeated every 4 hours if fever does not reduce.
Initially you can take them thrice a day to start with.
The dose can be increased to 6times (every 4 hours) if fever persists.
Another measures you can try for fever is warm tipid sponging - rubbing the forehead, armpit, neck and other areas with warm water.
If you do not feel better in a day or two, please visit your gynecologist. He/she can consider prescribing antibiotics to you.
