Hello,
I had gone through your question and understand your concern for your son.
As per the information available from your side, Your son's bilirubin is very high and your doctor has suggested him proper treatment, so follow your doctor's advise. I would also suggest you to check serum SGPT level, which is helpful in follow up of the treatment.
I would like to give few additional advise like take plenty of sugar and fluid, avoid unnecessary drugs, take proper rest. Don't worry, he will be alright within a week or so and then he can go for medical check up. So don't give any further medicines to your son and keep him under observation, he will be fine soon.
Hope this answers your question and feel free to ask any further follow up questions directly to me, i will be happy to guide you in right direction. Wish you and your son a very healthy life ahead.
I find this answer helpful
