      Just wondering if Alka-seltzer can cause a spike. Coming down with some kind of bug and seems like I got a spike after taking it.

      Does it have aspirin in it? I believe aspirin has been known to cause not only spikes in T but has been identified as a medicine that causes T.

      Medicines have different effects on people. I can't take Ibuprophen due to spikes in my T. But then Ibuprophen does not have any effect on other folks with T.

      It contains the same ingredients as ibuprophen so maybe I am sensitive to it also. Thanks...

      It'd be the asprin causing a spike. Asprin and other NSAIDs like ibuprophen are ototoxic but the effects are almost always temporary unless you're taking ridiculous amounts over long periods of time.

      Hope you feel better soon!

      Do you recommend anything for slight fever. Coming down with cold or flu and need something for fever. Thanks
