P K 100MG/162.5MG SUSPENSION

Prescription Required

Your Child’s Medicine At a Glance

P K 100MG/162.5MG SUSPENSION is a combination of two medicines, Ibuprofen and Paracetamol. Both of these belong to a class of medicines known as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS). P K 100MG/162.5MG SUSPENSION helps lower body temperature (fever) and reduce pain and inflammation (redness and swelling) both in infants and children.

To make the most of this medicine, adhere to the prescribed dose, time, and way while giving this medicine to your child. Give it to your child orally, preferably after meals as this will prevent the chance of developing an upset stomach. If your child vomits within 30 minutes of taking P K 100MG/162.5MG SUSPENSION, give the same dose again. In case it is already time for the next dose, skip repeating it. Never give more than the recommended dose for fast relief as that may cause unwanted effects in your child.

Your child may exhibit side effects like nausea, vomiting, stomach pain, heartburn, and diarrhea after taking this medicine. These side effects are temporary and should 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.

Before giving P K 100MG/162.5MG SUSPENSION to your child, do inform your child’s doctor if your child is allergic to any medicine or products, or has any history of 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. My child’s fever is persistent even after taking P K 100MG/162.5MG SUSPENSION. What should I do?
