My son is 7 months old and his body weight is already 10 kg. Can I give Pamol 125 via anus

1 Answer:

Dear Linda,

Pamol is one of the trademarks of paracetamol which is the drug of first choice to reduce fever and reduce pain which is most commonly used at all ages. This drug belongs to the acetaminophen class, and is widely used because of its relatively rare and mild side effects. The dose of paracetamol for children is 10-15 mg/kg of body weight per child. With a body weight of 10 kg, you can give paracetamol to your child starting at a dose of 100 mg per administration to 150 mg per administration. Paracetamol is indeed produced in many preparations, including suppositories or through the anus, through which the drug is more easily absorbed by the body and reacts more quickly in reducing fever. Giving through the anus is relatively safe for your child. It is also important to note that in addition to giving paracetamol, fluid consumption must also be carried out either through breastfeeding or water if your child is older and does not consume breast milk anymore. This is to prevent dehydration complications from fever. If the fever doesn't get better, don't hesitate to see a doctor. Here we attach an article about fever in babies. May be useful.
