Hi, my 5 weeks old baby has what is called colic so the Dr said. He cries and folds himself and make his stomach hard and pulls his legs. However the Dr gave him Ivitrim Suspension 50mL to drink and now I want to know if it's safe for my hiv negative baby? What could be the side effects?
Ilvitrim is an antibiotic, it can be used to treat various types of infections, it can be taken by anyone that needs to take it, it's not just restricted to those who have HIV. When someone is HIV positive, it's often used to prevent them from getting infections that could make them very ill.
That said, however, it's not going to do anything to treat colic, since that's usually caused by excess intestinal gas and not an infection.
As a matter of fact, it can cause nausea, gas and diarrhea as side effects, which might end up making him feel worse.
What type of doctor did you take him to, was it a pediatrician or just a regular general practitioner?
