Hello First of all patient used paracetamol 500 mg, again 650 mg , now Meftal forte i.e. mefenamic acid 500 mg+paracetamol 325 mg . As mefenamic acid very potent pain killer as uses in rheumatoid arthritis and joint pain and pain all over body . While paracetamol is anti pyretic i.e for fever. As this a drug for symptomatic relief and will subside fever . If fever is due to flu or viral, this is the best medicine and you can give three times in day to your son. Wait for 4-5 days but if fever still persist then consult a physician and get his opinion about the cause of fever . Good luck.
