what about if the higher dose ones

yes = so take paracetamol, 3 hours later take nurofen, 3 hours later paracetamol again

just don't exceed the stated doses

FWIW, i find ibupfrofen works better at redcuing fever so i tend to just stick to that

thanks ,have you had sf yet ?

no

but would treat it just the same as any flu - which would be to keep my temperature down, plus plenty of fluids and rest and ride it out
