About Dolo-MF Junior Oral Suspension 60 ml

Dolo-MF Junior Oral Suspension 60 ml is used in relieving pain. Pain can be acute (temporary) or chronic (long-lasting). Acute pain is a short time pain caused by damage to the tissues of the muscle, bone, or other organs. Chronic pain lasts for a long duration and is caused due to pathologies like nerve damage, etc. It helps provide relief from symptoms of muscle pain, and dental pain in children. Dolo-MF Junior Oral Suspension 60 ml is also used in reducing fever. 

Dolo-MF Junior Oral Suspension 60 ml is a combination medicine containing two drugs, namely, Mefenamic acid (NSAID) and Paracetamol (antipyretic). Mefenamic acid works by blocking the effect of a chemical known as prostaglandin, responsible for inducing pain and inflammation in our body. Paracetamol lowers the elevated body temperature and mild pain by inhibiting the synthesis of a chemical messenger (prostaglandin) and promoting heat loss (through sweating) that helps reset the hypothalamic thermostat.

These side effects do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects persist or worsen, please consult your pediatrician.

Disease/Condition Glossary

Pain: Pain can be short-term (acute) or long-term (chronic). Acute pain is short-term and caused by damage to the tissues of the muscle, bone, or organs. In contrast, chronic pain lasts for a longer duration and is caused by pathologies like nerve damage, Osteoarthritis, and dental pain caused by damage to the tooth nerve, infection, decay, extraction, or injury.

Fever: Fever is not a disease but a sign that your body is trying to fight an infection or illness in which your body's immune system gets activated to fight infections caused by bacteria or viruses. A normal temperature is around 98.6 F but may vary from person to person. Fever is caused due to the 'pyrogen' released by the hypothalamus part of the brain. This pyrogen causes heat-generating effects that match a new higher temperature set point to fight infection.
