Neulab Active Syrup

Prescription Required

Your child’s medicine at a glance

Neulab Active Syrup is a mixture of two medicines. They belong to a class of medicines known as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS). Such medicines, including Neulab Active Syrup, help lower body temperature (fever) and reduce pain and inflammation (redness and swelling) both in infants and children.

Neulab Active Syrup works by blocking the action of a chemical messenger that is known to cause fever and inflammation. Adhere to the prescribed dose, time, and way while giving this medicine to your child. It can be given orally before or after meals. However, it is best to give this medicine to your child after meals as this will prevent the chance of developing an upset stomach. Try giving it at a fixed time so that it becomes a part of your child’s daily routine and helps prevent missing a dose.

If your child vomits within 30 minutes of taking this medicine, give the same dose again but do skip it if it's time for the next dose. Avoid giving more than the recommended dose for fast relief as that may cause unwanted effects in your child. Complete the full dose of the medicine even if your child feels better after a few doses because stopping the medicine in between may worsen the condition.

Your child may exhibit side effects like nausea, vomiting, stomach pain, heartburn, and diarrhea after taking this medicine. These side effects are temporary and are likely to subside once your child’s body adapts to the medicine. In case they persist or become bothersome for your child, do consult your child’s doctor on a priority basis.


Note: As per the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Neulab Active Syrup is banned for children under 12 years of age.
