Is it dangerous to give 2 doses of Ibuprofen to baby?

I accidentally gave my 8 month old ibuprofen two hours early. She is 17 lbs and I gave her 1.25 ml only four hours a part instead of 6. She has an ear infection and RSV and I thought I was giving her Tylenol the second time but instead gave her two doses of ibprofen. She fell asleep. Should I be worried?

Hello,

Nothing to worry this is just one time and nothing will happen. Your baby has fallen asleep not because of ibuprofen so calm down.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Elona Dashi

Hi I am 35 weeks pregnant and had a healthy check up today, I have been taking ibuprofen a few times a week for a few weeks after running out of Tylenol and somehow missed the fact that Ibuprofen is dangerous. I always took 600 mg and took my last dose about an hr ago, very worried about baby s heart etc, please advise

I HAD BEEN TAKING 400 MG OF IBUPROFEN AT ABOUT AN HOUR AFTER H.S. WITH A NAGGING PAIN IN MY RIGHT HEEL. ALMOST IMMEDIATELY I FELL INTO A DEEP SLEEP WITH VIVID DREAMS BUT AWAKENED SPONTANEOUSLY AFTER ABOUT 90 MINUTES OF PAINLESS SLEEP. I WAS STILL SLEEPY AND FELL BACK INTO A SOMEWHAT LIGHTER SLEEP. I AM A 93 Y/O RETIRED PHYSICIAN IN FAIRLY GOOD HEALTH FOR MY AGE AND NOW A PATIENT IN A REHAB FACILITY. THIS MORNING I AWAKENED ABOUT 3 AM. REQUESTED another dose, but was refused mainly because I was taking Eliquis and there was too much danger of massive hemorrhage. In view of the absence of side effects with the dose I took the evening before, was I just lucky? Please advise. Thank you Harry Brickman MD

Hi my 7 & 1/2 mo. Old daughter was recently diagnosed with a benign form of the measles. Long story short. She s beyond miserable, & I would like to find her some relief. Here s a list of medications she s currently taking. Ibuprofen 100mg per 5 ml dosage is 3.75 ml every 8 hrs. I recently stopped giving her Tylenol. I was alternating between Tylenol and ibuprofen. She has a better reaction with just using the ibuprofen. I ve been giving Pedialyte freezer pops, and diluted Pedialyte (a small amount about 2 oz. Total per day; for 2 days now) With permission from Dr today I just started 1/4 tbs of Q-Dryl 3 times daily. She s now had her 2nd dose, and I m very pleased to say it s worked wonders; not just for her skin but for her irritability as well..I ve given her Aveeno (baby oatmeal) 30 min. soaks in room temp. water. Followed with Aveeno baby lotion. Saline (nasal spray) 2 sprays before meals, and 2 sprays at bedtime. Any who, my question is; can I use Caladryl on her rash spots? I ve used the calamine lotion in her already earlier today. It said 6 mo. or older was safe (she loved it) but in the Caladryl days under 2 yrs ask a Dr. So here I am. I would just call her Dr normally, but it s a quarter till midnight. I really do appreciate you taking the time to read my novel, although I said I would keep things short. -thank you April :)

Hi, may I answer your health queries right now ? Please type your query here...I lay on my left side 80% of the day it s just the way I sit. I m overweight. And I smoke I have anxiety and acid reflux and always seem to have alot of gas. I ve been having pain under my left breast it ranges from my left side all the way to the sternum. But the pAin hits and only last for a few moments then is gone that may repeat for about a half hour to an hour. Then it usually stops. I have been taking a very large amount of Tylenol and asprin probably about 12 Tylenol and 5 asprin per day for last 6 months. I take the aspirin because I think it protects my heart and the Tylenol because I usually get head or body aches. I m 31 and don t exercise. I m worried it could be my heart but like I said I also have anxiety and am always thinking of heart attacks. I recently thought it could be my spleen gallbladder. I really don t know but would like an opinion as to what I should do. I m half tempted to go tell the dr to check my arterys to see if I have any blockage just knowing if I didn t I think would be a huge weight lifted off me. I m also scared of surgery I ve never had one. So what is your opinion and what u think should be done.

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.
