About MACFAST 125MG SYRUP 60ML

MACFAST 125MG SYRUP 60ML belongs to the group of mild analgesics (pain killer), and antipyretic (fever-reducing agent) used to treat mild to moderate pain including headache, migraine, toothache, menstrual period pain, osteoarthritis pain, musculoskeletal pain, and reducing fever. Pain and fever are caused by the activation of pain receptors due to the release of certain natural chemicals in our body like prostaglandin. 

MACFAST 125MG SYRUP 60ML contains 'Paracetamol' which prevents the release of a natural chemical (prostaglandin), causing a sensation of pain, inflammation, and fever. MACFAST 125MG SYRUP 60ML also has an antipyretic effect and can reduce body temperature in cases of fever. MACFAST 125MG SYRUP 60ML works by resetting the temperature-regulating centre in the brain, thus decreasing temperature in fevers caused due to illness, chemotherapy, or other reasons. 

MACFAST 125MG SYRUP 60ML is available as an over-the-counter medication. However, it is always recommended to use it after consulting a doctor. The dose and duration of the medication depend on your condition and its severity. The common side effects of MACFAST 125MG SYRUP 60ML include agitation, nervousness, and insomnia. Everyone needs not experience the above side effects as they vary depending on their health, underlying conditions, age, weight and gender. In case of any discomfort, speak with a doctor.

Before starting MACFAST 125MG SYRUP 60ML, please inform your doctor if you have any known allergy to paracetamol, heart, kidney or liver problems, or persistent headaches. And also, if prescribed by your doctor, ask if the medication is safe to use during pregnancy and breastfeeding.
