Brief Answer: give drugs with some time gap between two drugs. Detailed Answer: Hi XXXXXXX Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic. Give paracetamol if there is fever. Lansoprazole to be given in the morning before breakfast. And the ideal time for monT is at night. And give remaining doses of antibiotic, levolin, and gelucil as per the instructions by the Pediatrician. And there should be 10 to 15 minutes time gap between each drug if more drugs has to be given. Hope I have answered your query, if you have any clarification please let me know. Regards.

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.

My 2 year old son spiked a 107 degree fever last week Thursday, which resolved itself overnight with Ibuprofen and Acetaminophen. Tuesday night he woke up and vomitted x1 in his crib, I gave him Zofran and he was fine the rest of the night. Last night, Wednesday, he vomited again after drinking a lot of water and having the hiccups. This morning he has been having so many hiccups, should I be worried?

Hi, may I answer your health queries right now ? Please type your query here...(To preface, my son has an egg allergy and has been unable to get a lot of the vaccines given to children at his age.) My 18 month old son has had a fever varying from 101 - 103 Monday thru Wednesday night. It has been controlled by alternating tylenol and ibuprofen. I took him last night to our after hour clinic to be sure it wasn t an ear infection. Ears looked fine, but his lymph nodes were swollen and his throat was red - Strep test came back negative. Said it was probably a virus. He woke up this morning with no fever, so I assumed the virus had taken it s course. However, this evening, I have noticed a rash on his belly, back and neck. they are small red bumps that aren t raised very much. They don t seem to be bothering him too much. I hate to take him to the doctor again if it s nothing, but I don t want to ignore something if it s potentially dangerous for him. Should we give him Benedryl? Should we take him to the ER tonight or wait to talk to my doctor in the morning?
