      There are many medicines for fever but somehow we tend to buy or patronize the brands that we have been using for the longest time. In my case, fevers meant paracetamol rather than ibuprofen, moreover, I tend to use Tempra over other brands because it was what my mother gave me since I was a child. We adults can take the tablet form and it does not have any harmful content or side effect.

      When I had my own child, and after a


      round of immunization shots, my baby had fever later in the day. So I went and bought Tempra Drops for infants, I was feeling sure I made the right choice in buying Tempra.

      When I opened the bottle and smelled the medicine, it was sickeningly sweet, but I thought that maybe it was just what it is. When I gave it to my baby, his face could not be drawn, he was gagging and he almost vomited.

      I panicked and I could ...


      • not let him take Tempra again. As I read the information packet, I realized that Tempra Drops had a small alcohol content.

        In my opinion, alcohol and medicine should not mix, I know some cough syrups also have alcohol content, but a medicine for infants definitely should not have alcohol. I don’t know why the manufacturer of Tempra Drops used such formulation and whether the level of alcohol content was not harmful to babies.

        Trying to find out though would be futile, and

        there are maybe a dozen of paracetamols that does not contain alcohol. I think it would be better if we don’t always allow our own beliefs or traditions to influence our choices in any product.

        We must be able to discern and know more about a product before buying it. And in case if you are like me, then simply throw away what does not work and find an alternative.

        I definitely would say that Tempra Drops/Syrup is not for babies, kids and teens.

    what is the right dosage of paracetamol tempra syrup 250mg 5ml do i give to my 17 month old baby that has a weight of 8.6 kg?

    John says :

    You should give 10-15 mg per kg. So you would give 80 mg or 120 mg, for 10 and 15 mg respectively.

    Galega says :

    The maximum dose you can give to your baby is 65 mg per kg in 24 hours. 10 to 15 mg per kg is the ideal for a single dose, as mentioned above. It is better to take a middle path and give around 50 mg every 4 or 6 hours. It should not be given more than 5 times in a single day.

    Galega says :

    There isn’t any problem with this dose. Why are you under stress? If the fever is gone, stop the dose. If it persists, consult a doctor.

    As far as your choice for dose is concerned, it is good.

    ReviewStream.com
    John says :

    Yes, it’s safe for children over 6 months. Children should take 10-15mg per kg of body weight. A dose should be given every 4-6 hours.

    Galega says :

    You can give Tempra Syrup or drop, whatever is convenient for you. Give around 50 mg every four hours. If the fever is still returning back even after administering six doses/24 hours, you should consult a pediatrician/child specialist doctor.

    after 6 hours giving a tempra pa racetamol, the temperature was normal and after 8 or 9 hour the fever comes back, what should i do? i will give again paracetamol coz the fever come back or continue to give every 6hrs in 24 hours even the temperature is normal?

    ReviewStream.com
    Galega says :

    It depends on the reason for which you are giving paracetamol (the reason behind fever). In any case, SOS is the most preferred prescription - give only when there is fever or body ache.
