Can Meftal be given instead of Crocin for fever?

Hi.. My son is 16 months old. He has fever since morning and we have given him Crocin at 6 hours interval. He has been putting fingers in mouth, seems there is pain due to teething. He is not able to sleep properly. Can we give him meftal p, it has been 4.5 hours since we have given him Crocin as Crocin seems ineffective to subside the pain? Please suggest. Thanks

In my opinion, you should continue with Crocin (or any other paracetamol syrup) because Meflan drug is not indicated for children especially for young children. Hope you find my answer helpful.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
