My fever hasn't been going down much at all when I've been taking ibuprofen. What is the problem? What should I do?

    Maybe you're not taking enough. You can take up to 4 every 4-6 hrs.

    Ibufrofen is a pain killer, not a fever killer.

    You need Anti-Bacterial tablets if you have a bacterial infection OR wait out the viral flu for virus infections. (anti-bacterial tabs cannot wipe the flu, you have to WAIT these out by your own body's immune system)
