Brief Answer:
Suggestions on fever medicine

Detailed Answer:
Hi...Paracetamol can be given in the dose of 15mg/kg/dose (maximum ceiling dose of 500mg) every 4-6th hourly that too only if fever is more than 100F. I suggest not using combination medicines for fever, especially with Paracetamol.

: I have a 1 yr old son. He had been prescribed amoxicillin 2 months back when he had fever. The fever got subsided. But now he is having occasional fever and Paracetamol suspension does not seem to work. Can I administer another course of amoxicillin (antibiotic) now, since it has been only two months since he last took a course of antibiotic?

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?
