Discussions that mention cimetidine

Rare Disorders board

Hi my 5 1/2 year old has been having fevers every 3 weeks for about 2 1/2 years..we have finally decided to have his tonsils out this Tuesday..I am very anxious about surgery, but Dr. Licameli here in Boston has treated 50 patients and with no explanation the only way to stop the cycle is to remove the T and A. We have been giving him Cimetidine over the last few months and his fevers have still come every 3 weeks, but not as bad!! He has not really had strep and his tonsils appear fine..we are hoping and praying that this will help end this for the poor child..it has completely knocked him out every few weeks for almost 3 years and he will be in first grade next year and hopefully this will end the cycle!!
