Discussions that mention motrin

Children's Health board

This happens so much to us, our kids are sick, we give them Motrin, they throw it up. Does anyone know how long it takes for medication to be absorbed? Thanks in advance.
Oh, I would be sure to use a suppository. What happens to us is when they have a cold/virus, not a stomach bug and have a low-grade fever (below 101) we want to give them Motrin to make them more comfortable at night and they throw that up. It is either because they don't want to take "medicine" and it's a protest or it upsets their stomach even though we have given them it along with food. I certainly don't want to give them a suppository if I don't have to. I'm just wondering how long does it take to be absorbed- 15 minutes? thought someone might know and I don't have to call the -doctor-on-call over the weekend. Thanks
