Hi,

Yes it may be useful in reducing the temperature. Ceftum-500 is an antibiotic commonly prescribed to treat infections caused by susceptible bacteria like respiratory tract infections, urine infections and other conditions.

By killing the bacteria ceftum helps in reducing the raised body temperature. Continue to take ceftum along with paracetamol as prescribed.

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

Take care

Regards,
Dr. Mohammed Taher Ali
