I have been diagnosed with mono and my Doctor does not want me to take any Tylenol or Advil or aspirin for my fever. I do not know why. I have a fever. Can you advise?

Sick TeenagerThat does seem strange response and makes me think I’m missing part of the picture. Typically it is fine to use those medications with mono. I would ask your doctor if there is something they are particularly worried about (maybe your liver) which is involved in processing the medications which is part of the decision. If you are confused, it is totally legitimate to ask your doctor to explain their thinking to help you understand.
