Doctor:How can I help you?
User:I am 26 weeks pregnant.
User:My older child is recovering from a throat infection and fever.
User:I am also feeling a mild body and head ache this evening. On checking I found my temperature to be 100.4
User:I am 33 years old.
User:My consultant OBG had recommended Dolo 650 in case of mild headaches. I understand that this is paracetamol only - would you advise taking that for now untill I can consult with her again?
User:My throat has been sore since morning as well.
User:Yes to taking Dolo?
Doctor:I am sorry. Yes, Dolo 650 is paracetamol containing drug and is very safe at this time.
Doctor:You can take them for fever.
User:What would you recommend if that fails to lower the temp - how long can I wait untill I must visit the hospital?
User:Also, how many hours gap between 2 doses of Dolo 650?
Doctor:In addition you also can try salt water gargles to take care of sore throat.
Doctor:Dolo 650 can be repeated every 4 hours if fever does not reduce.
