Answered by Mariela Vierk 2 years ago.
She still needs pediatric doses. She is not allergic to it. Advil vs. Advil gel If the basic ingredient is the same, she is not taking anything different. Flavor it with what you have. Answered by Conception Mcneil 2 years ago.
You can't cure a cold, only relieve some symptoms. tell her to suck it up and just have the medicine and stop being so fussy. Or, sugar cost it somehow. Basically all you can give her are paracetamol tablets to relive some pain, and some menthol products to sniff to try unblock her nose. Answered by Lawrence Demeo 2 years ago.
I don't think it will hurt her and no you can't taste the medicine inside the gel tablet. Answered by America Bokor 2 years ago.

Now the pains back (not as bad), but for 2 days I've been experiencing nausia & vertigo whenever I turn my head so bad that I actualy barf. There is nothing wrong with my ears. Could this be causing the vertigo? Answered by Cletus Doney 2 years ago.
I was looking for an answer to my suspicion that advil has been causing my vertigo when I came across your question...my vertigo started about a year ago now and I have been trying to figure out if there is a common variable for each episode...what I have come up with is that each time I experienced vertigo I was taking advil . Like you, I also had alot of pain in my neck and shoulders and I was using advil alot just to get through the day. My vertigo let up when I started going to massage therapy to help with the kinks in my neck and shoulders...I had no more pain, stopped taking advil, and stopped having vertigo. I'm wondering now if it is related to the pain in my neck and shoulders or the advil? But when I first started having vertigo I was taking advil everyday for about 10 days because I had started taking a prescription of which a side effect was headaches.The experienced frightened me and I stop taking the medication (ranidine150-for stomach acid) and the headaches stopped. I was taking alot of advil at the time. I can't remember if I had sore neck and shoulders and so I can't rule that out. I've had my ears checked, eyes checked, and a CAT scan as well and all these have come back perfect. I found this information on advil (Ibuprofen) and if you read where it says "adverse reactions" you will see vertigo on the list of CNS.

I have also had problems with vertigo. I took Naprorsyn on two different occasions for a mild tennis strain and both times I had significant vertigo. I did not connect the two until I stopped taking it the second time and the vertigo disappeared in a day. Now, a couple years later I am taking Advil for another minor tennis ache and today it dawned on me that the dizziness I feel, actually sometimes wobbly, when I get up in the morning is due to the Advil that I take the night before for my shoulder pain. I am glad that others have experienced the same problem, because it is very low on the list of side effects, but is the only one I have with these noninflammatory drugs. What causes that?????

What can happen if you take too much Advil?
I overheard my parents talking about how much Advil my sister took and they're really mad cu they didn't know how much she took up until a minute ago. She's taking Advil for a tooth ache and I swear I heard them say she took like 10 Advil today. I know thats bad but what can happen!?!!
Asked by Adrian Gilstrap 2 years ago.
First, the official PDR (Physician's Desk Reference) site says repeatedly that the maximum daily dose of Ibuprofen in adults is 3200 milligrams per day. You should not continue this dose for more than ten consecutive days. Ibuprofen is nephrotoxic. That means it can do acute and severe kidney damage. It is also really hard on your stomach and liver, and should be avoided by patients with liver disease. The pediatric dose of ibuprofen is based on weight and should not exceed 40 milligrams per kilogram per day. You don't say if she took all ten advil at once. If she has taken 10 200 milligram ibuprofen she has yet to exceed the maximum daily dose. It doesn't sound like it is being very effective for her. You don't say how old your sister is, but maybe she should see a dentist and fix the reason for the toothache. Answered by Laurice Zmuda 2 years ago.
Advil does kidney damage. You can take up to 8 a day with no issues and 12 for a very short time. 4 at a time is recommended max. Answered by Mirna Maestre 2 years ago.

Hello I'm almost 16, and for the past six months or so have had headaches a couple of times a week. I have been able to control them with wearing hats in cold weather or sleeping, but for every day in summer break I've had a really bad headache every day. I'm sleeping, eating, and drinking just fine and am not stressed. Any ideas as to the cause? Also, is it safe to take two advils every day? That's what I've been doing to kill hte pain, I'm going to a physical on Tuesday, and will mention it my doc. for the third time, and hopefully be told something other than to sleep more. Thank You :) Answered by Nora Lazzeri 2 years ago.
I'm 16 and the same exact thing happens to me. STOP TAKING THE ADVIL. Taking the Advil every day causes rebound headaches and makes them worse. Migraines/headaches can be heridatary, so ask some family members if they ever suffere from constant headaches. And you may not think so, but you could be stressed. I was told that I could have stress headaches and I realized then how muh I had going on in my life. Take it easy and slow down a bit. Headaches can also be caused by certains foods you eat. Dairy products and deli meats are common foods that can cause headaches. But yes, certainly talk to your doctor and in sure they will recommend you to a pediatric neurologist.

I have a similar problem, and recently started at a natropath. If the anxiety medication helped you, it could have been the serotonin that it produced helped ease the pain. Perhaps you should research into suplements you can take to help encourage more serotonin production in your body? Good luck. I'm in the exact same boat. Hopefully we'll both feel better soon :) Answered by Sherri Fitzherbert 2 years ago.

What can I do to help my 2 yr old with the fever of 102.0?
Asked by Dustin Briddick 2 years ago.
102.0 is a decent fever. Not extremely high by any means. Apparently hospitals do not take fevers seriously until they are 103-104 believe it or not. I would try a pediatric advil give it 20 min and then if that does not bring it down, give him/her some tylenol too. It is perfectly safe to take both at the same time. That is what the hospital will tell you. Just make sure you follow the instructions on the boxes individually. Advil is usually every 6-8 hours, tylenol is 4-6. You can give him/her peidialight pops or sugar free pops, put cool clothing on him/her and snuggle. Lots of snuggles. Good luck to you. Answered by Ilona Speyer 2 years ago.
Put a cold towel on their head. Give him/her a cool bath. Baby tylenol, ect. Good luck! Answered by Lieselotte Polucha 2 years ago.
