Brief Answer: First give paracetamol, followed by Levolin. Detailed Answer: Hi XXXXXXX Thank you for getting back. As there is fever, first give paracetamol. And after 15 minutes, you can give Levolin syrup. Once the child takes his feed, give Gelucil in prescribed dose. And give antibiotic 15 to 20 minutes after Gelucil. Hope I have answered your query, if you have any clarification please let me know. Regards.
