Your child’s medicine at a glance

Mefdec Spas Syrup contains two active ingredients both of which belong to a common class of medicines known as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). It helps to lower body temperature (fever) and reduce pain and inflammation (redness and swelling) both in infants and children.

Adhere to the prescribed dose, time, and way while giving Mefdec Spas Syrup to your child. Give it orally, preferably at a fixed time. It can be given before or after food, but giving it after food helps prevent the chance of developing an upset stomach. If your child vomits within 30 minutes of taking this medicine, give the same dose again. Avoid giving more than the recommended dose for fast relief as that may cause unwanted effects in your child.

Some children develop certain mild side effects like nausea, vomiting, stomach pain, heartburn, and diarrhea after taking this medicine. In case your child develops these side effects, do not worry as these are mostly temporary and resolve on their own. But, if these effects persist or become bothersome for your child, do consult your child’s doctor on a priority basis.

Before giving Mefdec Spas Syrup 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.

Q. Can I change the dose of Mefdec Spas Syrup for my child by myself according to the severity of illness?

No, it is not recommended to alter the dose of the medicine without consulting a doctor.

Q. Can all children be given the same dose of Mefdec Spas Syrup?

No. Mefdec Spas Syrup cannot be given to everyone in the same dose. The doctor decides the appropriate dose based on the child’s age and body weight. Since the dose changes so unpredictably, you must never give any dose of this medicine to anyone without consulting a doctor. Follow your doctor’s instructions carefully to get the most benefit.

Q. When will my child feel better?

The doctor may advise you to keep giving Mefdec Spas Syrup to your child for a few days to weeks, depending upon the severity of the illness.

In case your child continues to feel unwell even after completion of the full prescribed course of the medicine, consult your child’s doctor as soon as possible.

Q. Are there any serious side effects of this medicine for my child?

Mefdec Spas Syrup is well-tolerated by most children. However, if your child experiences any intolerable episodes like persistent vomiting, body swelling, decreased urine frequency, serious allergic reaction, and severe pain due to gastric ulcers, then rush to your doctor on an immediate basis.

Store Mefdec Spas Syrup at room temperature, in a dry place, away from direct heat and light. Avoid leaving medicines within the reach and sight of children.

Q. My child is taking Mefdec Spas Syrup for toothache and now has to undergo an extraction procedure. Should I continue giving Mefdec Spas Syrup?

Withhold Mefdec Spas Syrup from at least 3 to 5 days before a surgical procedure to prevent excessive bleeding. In case of any confusion, it is best to reach out to your child’s doctor.
