Your child’s medicine at a glance

G Met Suspension is an antibiotic medicine that is effective against a wide range of bacterial and parasitic infections. In children, it is used to treat infections of the teeth, lungs, gastrointestinal tract, urinary tract, and genital tract.

Give G Met Suspension to your child orally, preferably at a fixed time, either before or after food. In case your child develops a stomach upset, prefer giving it with food. The usually prescribed frequency is twice a day, once in the morning and once in the evening. If your child vomits within 30 minutes of intake, repeat the same dose but never double up the dose if it is time for the next dose. The dose and duration depend upon the type and severity of the infection, your child’s age, and body weight, so stick to the dose, time, and way prescribed by the doctor.

Some children may develop minor and temporary side effects after taking this medicine. These include nausea, vomiting, metallic taste, headache, loss of appetite, abdominal cramps, and mild skin rash. These side effects usually go away once your child’s body adapts to the medicine. However, in case they persist for long or start bothering your child, you must consult your child’s doctor without any delay.

Your child’s doctor must be aware if your child has ever had any previous episode of allergy, heart problem, liver impairment, and kidney malfunction. This will guide the doctor in planning your child’s overall treatment.

Quick tips

  • If your child develops diarrhea as a side effect, encourage them to drink plenty of water.
  • G Met Suspension may cause an altered taste. Eating citrus fruit or sipping plenty of water or fruit juice may help.
  • Do not give any calcium, magnesium, iron, vitamin, or antacid to your child within 2 hours of taking G Met Suspension as these can affect the absorption of the medicine.
  • Conditions like common cold and flu are caused by viruses. Never use this medicine for such conditions.
  • Your child must complete the entire course of antibiotics. Stopping too soon may cause the bacteria to multiply again, become resistant, or cause another infection.
  • Discontinue G Met Suspension and inform the doctor immediately if your child develops a rash, itchy skin, swelling of face and mouth, or has difficulty in breathing.
  • Never save the medicine for future illnesses since its effectiveness in future infections cannot be guaranteed.

FAQs

Q. What if I give excess G Met Suspension by mistake?

Although an extra dose of G Met Suspension will not have any side effects, you must always be vigilant. If you think you have given too much G Met Suspension to your child, immediately speak to a doctor. Overdose increases the risk of unwanted side effects such as seizures, tremors, severe headache, sudden weakness, blood cell abnormalities, and rapid and irregular heartbeat. Rush to your child’s doctor on an immediate basis if you notice any of these symptoms.

Q. What should I do if my child shows no improvement even after taking G Met Suspension for the prescribed duration?

Ineffective treatment with G Met Suspension could mean that the medicine is not able to act against the infection-causing bacteria. In such a case, visit your child’s doctor who may prescribe some other antibiotic, having more specific action toward the infection-causing bacteria.

Q. Can other medicines be given at the same time as G Met Suspension?

G Met Suspension can sometimes interact with other medicines or substances. Tell your doctor about any other medicines your child is taking before starting G Met Suspension. Also, check with your child’s doctor before giving any medicine to your child.

Q. Can I get my child vaccinated while on treatment with G Met Suspension?

Antibiotics usually do not interfere with the ingredients in vaccines or cause a bad reaction in a child who has just been vaccinated. However, children taking antibiotics should not get vaccinated until they recover from the illness. As soon as your child feels better, the vaccine can be given.

Q. What should I tell the doctor before giving G Met Suspension to my child?

Inform the doctor if your child is suffering from heart disease, genetic disorders involving blood vessels, seizures, psychiatric disorders, diabetes, photoallergy (allergy from sunlight), neuromuscular disorders, or rheumatoid arthritis. This is because there is a possibility that G Met Suspension may aggravate these conditions and result in complications.

Q. My child has been passing red-brown urine ever since he started taking G Met Suspension. Is it normal?

Yes, it is normal. G Met Suspension contains an active ingredient called metronidazole which can cause red-brown urine. It is a harmless side effect. It will subside once the medicine is stopped after the completion of the treatment.

Q. My child is having a common cold. Is it safe to give G Met Suspension along with cough & cold medicines?

No, do not give G Met Suspension with cough and cold medicines as it can interfere with their working.
