In case they persist or become bothersome for your child, do consult your child’s doctor on a priority basis.

Before administering Gesnim 50mg Tablet to your child, do inform the doctor if your child is allergic to any medicine or products, or has a history of any heart problems, birth defects, liver disease, kidney disease, lung disease, or bleeding disorder. This information is critical for dose alteration and helps in planning your child's overall treatment.
