Fever Relief Medicine Options

14 Aug 2018

Your average body temperature can be between 97.7 °F—99.5 °F. This can vary by person or throughout the day. In adults, anything above 99.5 °F is considered a fever (when measured orally).


If you have a fever, you can help reduce it with acetaminophen.


Several Mucinex products have acetaminophen in them; so if you’ve already taken acetaminophen, check the labels of every medicine you’re taking thoroughly.


It’s important that you don’t take more than the daily recommended dose of acetaminophen. Adults should never exceed a total dose of 4000 mg of acetaminophen in any 24-hour period.


Try to stay hydrated, as well. Drink plenty of fluids like water or sports drinks. If you have a high fever, or symptoms like diarrhea and vomiting, sports drinks will help replenish electrolytes that your body has lost.
