Both my kids have never had night terrors but when they have a fever and after I've given them meds, they hallucinate. My 8 year old always does and we expect this. Last year I called the nurse about it. Last night my 10 year old started seeing scary, fuzzy numbers at 2AM. I tried to comfort him and told him it was time to try to go to sleep. He says, "Okay Mom. But what number do I need to X in order to go to bed?" As in multiplication....Uh, ya. A little weird. I'm thinking it's not the Children's Advil. Has anyone else had this problem and if so, what did you do? I think there isn't much I can do...Answer Question

It's due to a fever, switch to Children's Tylenol because that's better for reducing a fever. Advil is for aches & pains.
