Hello, Sir, I am a family doctor from Icliniq and will try to answer your questions. It seems to me that you have two. The first concerns your use of Tylenol and Advil. You may not have meant to say overdose. If however, you have taken more than 800 mg of Ibuprofen or 1000 mg of Tylenol, those are excessive doses and could be associated with side effects. I would advise you to call the Canadian or US Poison Control Center. They give excellent free advice about overdoses. The second question is in regard to your fever and weight loss. I am not sure how long those things have been going on. With COVID-19 in your area, it is possible this could be your problem. There are many other causes of fever, such as influenza and various other viral and bacterial infections. Often when a fever falls, a person can feel chilled. Some things that you can do besides using Ibuprofen 400 mg up to three times a day or Tylenol 1000 mg three times a day include drinking alit of liquids getting rest and isolating your self from others. Things that would make you want to seek a doctor's care would be increasing cough, trouble breathing, chest pain, trouble thinking clearly or inability to care for yourself. I will pray that you feel better soon. Please let us know if you are not getting better or have additional questions.
