My daughter, age 57 is under treatment clot on her

Customer Question

My daughter, age 57 is under treatment for blood clot on her lung. She's taking Eliquis and is on oxygen. She is having a fever of 102.4 and she says she can't take Ibuprofen but wonders if she can take tylenol. She's had a call into her doctor since this morning but he has not called back. We are in West Hills, CA 91304. Her doctor is Dr. Vo.
JA: OK. The Doctor will need to help you with this. Is there anything else important you think the Doctor should know?
Customer: Yes. Why the hell doesn't he answer his calls. She called yesterday and never received a response.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Doctor about your situation and then connect you two.

GreetingsYes, she certainly can take Tylenol, no more than 650-mg three times daily. Ibuprofen might increase the blood thinning effect of Eliquis and therefore, it is avoided.Also, be aware, that this degree of fever is not related to her blood clot, and is critical. If she has not been evaluated by a physician for this, then she is well advised to do so. Let me know if you need any further clarification
