There has to be some form of documentation of a bacterial AND amoebic infection to justify the use of the above combination. If no tests were asked or done, then this medicine is not indicated, and you might be better off asking for a second opinion
or getting a stool test
done to see what is wrong with your son.
May I suggest also not to mix paracetamol
and mefenamic acid
prescriptions in a single illness. Just continue with paracetamol on an as-needed basis for fever
. Otherwise there is no need to use either of the medicines to "prevent" fever.
