The doctor reminds: these 5 kinds of antipyretic drugs are harmful to the baby, and parents should not use them for their children no matter how anxious they are

Sickness is inevitable as children grow up, and fever often occurs. When a child has a fever, as a parent, how should you take care of it? In addition to monitoring body temperature changes and observing mental state, we must also know that there are 5 kinds of drugs that have been included in the blacklist of antipyretics. When the child has a fever, we must remember not to give the child lightly. So, what are these 5 drugs? Please listen to me to tell you one by one, I suggest that every parent read the collection, so as not to find it when they need it.

I. Nimesulide

Zeng Jin, Nimesulide has a certain position in the field of antipyretics for children due to its good antipyretic effect. I remember that in the first few years of my work, parents often took out "Nimesulide" from their pockets and told me that the child took this drug to reduce fever a few hours ago. However, this drug, in 2011, the State Drug Administration clearly pointed out that children under the age of 12 are prohibited from using it. The reason is: Nimesulide can easily cause damage to the liver and central nervous system of children. Although the Food and Drug Administration has banned the use of children under the age of 12, doctors in some clinics and pharmacists in pharmacies have not updated their knowledge in a timely manner, and will still recommend some mothers to buy this medicine to relieve fever in their children. In the past few years, I have often encountered parents using nimesulide for their children to reduce fever in the outpatient clinic. So, parents and friends, please remember that as long as your child is not over 12 years old, if a doctor prescribes Nimesulide to reduce fever, please refuse to use it!

Second, Lysine

Many parents may be unfamiliar with this name, but if you change the name, you will find that this antipyretic drug once How popular it is, it is simply "like thunder"! Another name for it is "Fever Reduction Needle"! Is it too familiar! As long as I go to the clinic every day, I will be asked by many parents: "Doctor, give my child an injection to reduce fever! Taking medicine is too slow, and the effect of antipyretic injection is better!" Indeed, lysine has a good antipyretic effect, but, Its side effects are even greater, it can lead to the occurrence of Reye's syndrome, and even directly lead to epilepsy, and children under the age of 12 are the most common age. What is Reye's syndrome, that is, after the child is injected with ryanpirin, symptoms such as convulsions, vomiting, and even coma, may directly lead to death. Are you willing to take such a high risk in pursuit of a good antipyretic effect?

Three, Bupleurum Injection

This is another "fever-reducing needle"! I am afraid that many people have used this drug when they were young, because Chaihu injection is a star antipyretic drug that has been used clinically for more than 70 years. However, this star antipyretic drug also has great side effects: in addition to these side effects, Chaihu injection has also been reported in several cases with very serious consequences: Therefore, in 2018, the State Drug Administration clearly required that Chaihu injection The instructions for Hu injection have added warnings, and revised items such as [adverse reactions], [contraindications], and [precautions]. Subsequently, the newly released "Revision Requirements for the Instruction Manual of Bupleurum Injection" clearly pointed out that "children's contraindication" must be indicated in the [taboo] item.

Fourth, Analgin

Because it is cheap, Analgin is also a very popular antipyretic drug, but it has been completely penetrated because of its side effects. In the cold palace. There are too many side effects of Analgin, and each side effect is very serious. Just to name a few examples, such as leukopenia, acute hematopoietic stagnation, aplastic anemia, etc., each one is enough to scare us. Because of this, as early as 1977, the United States officially banned Analgin. In our country, finally, in 2020, the State Drug Administration clearly requested that the item "Pediatric Use" of Analgin Tablets should be revised to: This product is prohibited for children under 18 years old.

V. Hormones

This is another "fever-reducing needle" that is very recognized by parents. It can be spanked or intravenous infusion. Due to the particularity of hormones, it is impossible for the State Drug Administration to issue any directives requiring children to be prohibited from using them. Because hormones have very powerful anti-inflammatory effects, they play a very important role in children's medication, and even in many cases, hormones can save lives. However, if the hormone is only used as a fever reducer, it will do more harm than good. The disadvantages of using hormones to reduce fever are, on the one hand, its side effects, such as peptic ulcer, irritability, osteoporosis, etc., and another important point is that it will cover up the disease, delay the disease, and even aggravate the disease. Because of the powerful anti-inflammatory effects of hormones, no matter what the cause of your fever, it can lower your body temperature. However, what we need to know is that fever is actually a signal from the body to us: there is inflammation in the body, and we need to find the cause. For example, when a child has a fever, we need to find the cause. If we consider a viral infection, we only need symptomatic treatment. If it is a bacterial infection, we need to use antibiotics. Then, in the subsequent changes in body temperature, we will continue to verify the previous treatment. If the plan is unreasonable, it can be adjusted in time. However, if you have been using hormones to reduce fever, then this process has been masked. Even, hormones will reduce the child's body immunity, causing some pathogenic bacteria to take the opportunity to grow and reproduce, which is likely to cause secondary infection or aggravate the disease.

Children have fever, what antipyretic is the safest

At present, the safe antipyretics recommended by many countries and WHO for children have only two ingredients: Acetaminophen and ibuprofen. However, these two medicines have been made into different dosage forms by different merchants and appear on the market. There are granules, capsules, tablets, oral liquids, and suppositories that plug the buttocks. It may be called "Merrill Lynch", it may be called "Children's Antipyretic Suppository", it may also be called "Tylenol", or "Children's Baifuning", in short, no matter what it is called, as long as mothers look for it" Acetaminophen" and "Ibuprofen" ingredients will do. In addition, when using antipyretics for children, mothers should also pay attention to:
  • The timing of using antipyretics is: when the child has a body temperature ≥38.5 ℃ (and) or obvious discomfort due to fever;< /li>
  • For babies younger than 6 months, paracetamol is recommended first;
  • For babies older than 6 months, both paracetamol and ibuprofen can be used;
  • The combined application and alternate use of acetaminophen and ibuprofen are not recommended;
  • When the baby has a fever and is taking compound cold medicine at the same time, be sure to pay attention to the specific ingredients of the cold medicine, see Check the ingredient list for ibuprofen or acetaminophen, and avoid taking them at the same time to avoid overdose.
