Hi Welcome to

Laxopeg peak of action is 2-4 days. That means it will be in the system for minimum 5 days.

Regarding fever, check the temperature, if more than 101 degree F. give a dose of Tylenol/Paracetamol and then check the temperature. Tepid sponging- gently wipe the body with cold water also helps decrease fever. Temperature of 101 and 102 can be managed at home for 24 hours. But if recurs and not managed with paracetamol, needs to be evaluated by Pediatrician.
