my child has a fever, age 5.8 years. I give Sanmol 10 ml, is the dose correct?

1 Answer:

Hi Safry,


Sanmol is a trademark of medicine with paracetamol content. I will not discuss a particular drug brand, but I will discuss paracetamol.


Paracetamol or acetaminophen is a class of drugs that reduce heat and mild pain. This drug is commonly used in conditions of inflammation or infection that cause fever or pain in the body (myalgia). This drug is classified as over-the-counter medicine so that it can be purchased without a doctor's prescription, however, as should the use of other drugs, paracetamol should still be used as recommended for use.


The dose of paracetamol is calculated based on a person's body weight, which is 10-15 mg / kg body weight so it is inappropriate to give drugs based on his age because the weight varies greatly. If you feel unsure or unclear about this I suggest that you consult directly with your doctor to get advice that suits your child's needs.
