Hi team, my son is 16th month old... He had fever last two days from yesterday evening he is fine.... Doctor suggested give medicine for 4 days if fever is there or not.... So I gave calpol and after that by mistake I gave flexon also instead of giving other medicine... Flexon I gave 2. 5 ml... So is it anything to worry about as I gave both medicine at same time.. My baby weight is 12kg

Answer:
If you gave 5 ml of calpol (120mg/5 ml) and flexon as mentioned, the paracetamol dose is still ok for a 12 kg baby. Not a worry in that case.
