Some shoppers drug marts have both childrens advil and children's Tylenol, but they are kept behind the pharmacy counter to deter hording. If you ask, they will give you one.

I went on business trip to the states a month ago and retuned with $100 in kids cold medicine. Just ridiculous considering US and Australia don’t have same problem. Its been like this for 6 months.

I’m so sick today. Been in bed since 11 while leaving my wife with a handful of a toddler. I feel terrible but can’t get out of bed. It feels like every cell of my body is on fire and even just turning my head is excruciating.

Fever is 38.6 which is just moderate but I have not felt this terrible in years, even with influenza, Covid, and bronchitis all within a couple weeks of each other in April.

Update at day 14 of entire family getting this.

Kids are relatively back to normal but still coughing. They each missed one week of school.

For adults and my wife had same symptoms as I do.

Week 1: I worked about 25 hrs first week of being sick, took lots of Tylenol and felt terrible. Really chesty cough.

Week 2 I worked a normal week and felt a 6/10 at best. Really tired (in bed by 9pm and up at 7 or 8am). No more body aches but still chesty cough.

This is my 3rd weekend where I will spend it beside a fire while either watching premier league or reading books.

Anyways, Iíve lost about 5 lbs through this, so not all bad.

Example: 44lb child (20kg) can take 300mg of acetaminophen per dose every 4-6 hours. Half of an extra strength tablet is 250mg so that would work crushed up on a spoonful of yogurt or apple sauce if they can't swallow a tablet



Ibuprofen: 5-10mg/kg every 6 to 8 hours (max 400mg for anyone 40kg or larger and max 600-800mg per 24hrs). Regular strength tablets are 200mg and extra strength are 400mg

Example: 44lb child (20kg) can take 200mg of ibuprofen n per dose every 6-8 hours. A regular strength tablet is 200mg so that would work crushed up on a spoonful of yogurt or apple sauce if they can't swallow a tablet
Street Pharma lives up to his name! I've always wondered with the shortages for children's tylenol why people didn't just cut their regular tylenol in half or crush it up and weight it for the right dosage?

People need to lighten up. I thought that was one of the funnier skits/ads on SNL so far this season.

Fever went up to 39.3 yesterday and I felt like absolute garbage. Spent the night sweating and blowing my nose, must have chugged 2L of water but my mouth felt like a desert cause I couldn't breathe through my nose.

Feeling a bit better today, going to take it easy and rest but I can see things turning around.

Well, COVID lunatics arent notorious for their sense of humour.

You've got anti-vax Convoy lunatics on one side and all-the-vax, COVID fanboy lunatics on the other.

Its not like there is any moderate middle-ground.

Haha, nope! I'm actually on a leave this year doing my Masters degree so I don't have to go in and spread whatever this is to the kids.

"This is by far the busiest pediatric emergency departments across the country have probably ever been," said Dr. Stephen Freedman, a professor of pediatrics and emergency medicine at the University of Calgary.

"When you combine [ongoing staffing shortages] with very high volumes of children seeking emergency department care and the acuity, which is quite high, that really is leading to emergency departments that are bursting at the seams."
Quote:
As front-line health care workers scramble to keep up with ballooning demand, doctors are urging parents to take some simple precautions including vaccinating children against influenza and COVID-19.

There are two other key steps families can take, according to Kellner.

"Stay at home if you're sick and consider wearing masks in public including at schools, grocery stories [and] other places where its crowded."

Just curious, anyone got back to wearing masks or have their kids wear them to school?

I've started wearing masks again when in busy public areas for sure. Getting my kids to when we're out and about as much as possible as well, even just to keep hygiene at top of mind as much as possible.

At school, we're not having my Grade 2'er wear a mask since with gym, lunch, etc, it's not going to make a difference.

My toddler is too young to keep a mask on all day, which sucks since she's in daycare, and that's the biggest germ factory of them all.

My wife (a teacher) is going back to wearing one. One of my kids never stopped wearing them to school (his choice), the other probably won't unless most of her classmates do.

I don't know what I have but it's a doozy. Sore throat for 2+ weeks now, and the last 5 days have been brutal. Feel like absolute trash. Congested, weak, alternating between hot and cold, feeling like I've had the life sucked out of me. Tylenol Complete has helped to get me through it thankfully but man, this is rough. I tested negative for Covid 4 times between Wednesday and yesterday, so I'm thinking either flu or RSV? I have no idea but I hate it.
