About Metacin Syrup Large

Metacin Syrup Large is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) used in relieving pain and fever. 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. This medicine helps relieve symptoms of muscle pain and dental pain in children. Fever is a high body temperature followed by shivering, headache, and, in severe cases, delirium.

Metacin Syrup Large contains Paracetamol which belongs to the antipyretic and analgesic class of drugs. Paracetamol works by blocking the production of a chemical messenger (prostaglandin) and encouraging heat loss (through sweating), which helps reset the hypothalamus thermostat.

Metacin Syrup Large may cause certain side effects such as abdominal pain, cold-like symptoms, or diarrhoea. These side effects do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects persist or worsen, please consult your paediatrician. Metacin Syrup Large should be used as advised by your doctor. Do not give the child more than the prescribed dose of Metacin Syrup Large . Metacin Syrup Large can be given with or without food. Your paediatrician will decide the dose of the medicine depending upon the type and severity of the condition.

Disease/Condition Glossary

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

Fever: Fever is not a disease but a sign that the body is trying to fight an infection or illness in which the 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 to match a new higher temperature set point to fight infection.
