Discussions that mention motrin

Children's Health board

Go to the stickied post on the ENT board.

My son had adenoids removed at the age of 2 and tonsils at the age of 3.5. It was great.

Saline solution for the nose is important.. apply every four hours. Alternate tylenol and motrin every three hours. Keep a medicine chart so you do not double dose. Get octicaine (sp). it is on the stickied post on the ENT board.

There were no issues and my son only complained if the pain killers lapsed and his throat got dry. So. Keep the meds in.. keep the occupied.. they will be ready to eat as soon as they leave the hospital.. ketchup will burn. Chinken nuggets, luke warm food, peanut butter crackers, apple sauce.. my son at it with out an issue.

Good luck and post this on the ENT board. You will get a lot of help that way.
