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.

I was circumcised this morning and I'm terrified of going to bed. Is there anything I can do to take the edge off the pain?I've taken some painkillers (2x50mg paracetamol, 40mg ibuprofen and some codeine phosphate tablets) and read about wearing tighter, more supportive bedclothes.For further information, I just took the dressing off from around my penis and there was a fair bit of blood from near one of the stitches. Half an hour or so with some tissue paper and reasonable pressure has stopped the flow, but I worry that if (or, more likely, when) I get an erection in my sleep, it might start to bleed again.

I was vomiting all night, then diarrhea, fever(99.7) and then leg halves. I ve taken aleve, generic imodian. The fever has gone down, diarrhea gone but I still have the itchy leg halves. The halves are starting to appear on my arms now. I am out of town, should I go to a clinic? The only thing I can eat is water and crackers.
