OOOPS! Gave 3 24 hour allergy pills instead of ibuprofen
Patient :I accidentally gave my husband 3 24 hour allergy pills (OTC) instead of ibuprofen this morning. He woke up with the flu (achy all over) and I was sleeping and gave him the wrong pills. This was about 3 hours ago. Have been giving him water when he wakes up. He is still asking for the ibuprofen which I am hesitant to give him since I have him the allergy medicine (too much!)...can I give him the ibuprofen????? We are on vacation right now so I found this site.
