Question: Hi Doctor,
My daughter is approx. 1 year old.
We are planning a trip with her this month. Would like to know the medicines which we should keep for her as this would be her first trip so we are not sure how she will behave. We want to know the medicines for her for following things to keep with us in case required:

1. Vomiting
2. Fever
3. Cough and cold
4. Loose motions

Anything else which you can suggest in general. Thanks.

Brief Answer:
List provided

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone carefully through your query and understand your concerns. The following medicines would be of help:
* Syr Ondem (ondansetron) for vomiting
* Syr Sumol (paracetamol) for fever
* Atarax Drops (Hydroxizine) for cough and cold
* Pedialyte or ORS (oral rehydration solution) for loose motions.
* Colicaid Drops for incessant cry which could occur due to colics.

If you could mention the body weight I could suggest the doses.

Let me know if I could help further.

Hi Doctor,
Her weight was 9.6 KGs 10 days back at the time of her vaccination.

Please suggest the doses. Also, we had Sinarest AF drops and calpol drops with us which were suggested to her when she had cough and fever 2 months back. Can we use them as well for cough and fever? We had put them in refrigerator since then.

Brief Answer:
Dose mentioned

Detailed Answer:
* Syr Ondem (ondansetron) 2.5 ml when needed for vomiting
* Syr Sumol (paracetamol) 1.5 ml per dose if there is fever
* Atarax Drops (Hydroxizine) 1ml thrice daily for 4-5 days for cough and cold.
Sinarest AF is an alternative to Atarax. One of the two can be used. You can use Sinarest AF if you have it.
* Pedialyte or ORS (oral rehydration solution) sip by sip frequently for loose motions.
* Colicaid Drops 1ml when needed for incessant cry.

i am a 28 year old female. starting LAST monday the 8th (in the evening) i started having severe abdominal pains that began in the middle of my abdomen. by the next morning the pain was localized in my RLQ sharp stabbing pains, nausea without vomiting. i was seen by my family physician who immediately suspected my appendix. lab work was drawn, all labs perfectly normal. scheduled CT with contrast the next day. pain continued and intensified, continued with nausea, then the vomiting came. the ct came back normal, and was to have a f/u with my dr on thursday. they called wed to check on me and told them my symptoms were worse. they immediately brought me back into the office, drew more blood and labs still perfectly normal. they referred me to a surgeon who ordered a colonoscopy. i prepped for it that evening and it was performed the next day (thursday) my colonoscopy showed SEVERE sigmoid diverticula (much more and much worse than a person of my age should have) the procedure was otherwise unremarkable. I am still in severe pain, had pelvic ultrasound which showed a hemmorragic cyst inside my right ovary. transvaginal ultrasound yesterday showed the cyst has since disappeared. I am now scheduled for exploratory laproscopic abdominal surgery to see what could be the source of my pain. what do you think is going on with me? i have never been in this much painever. am now taking percocet 7.5 and lortab 10 around the clock. i have not been able to keep anything down in 5-7 days. was in the ER and received i.v fluids on monday night. also am taking zofran and phenergan to try and control my nausea and vomiting, which is really not helping.
