To parents, please take note of this. Paracetamol is a drug that can be purchased over the counter medication without a prescription from a doctor. Therefore, there are some parents who often give their children this Panadol pain during regularly.
Panadol problem is, these drugs produce active radicals that can damage the liver (liver). In a healthy adult individuals, the liver has an enormous capacity of the removal of this radical via the bile (through the mechanism of conjugation with glucorinide). However, the child has less ability to get rid of this radical accumulation in the liver. Children who are affected are under the age of 2 years for the construction of the heart is still in the process of elimination in the liver.
Should radical material was gathered in large quantities, it can cause serious liver damage and eventually cause liver can not function. liver can not work to bring harm to the child that can lead to death (in acute cases).
Recommended that parents give their children Panadol in small doses (half boiled) or panadol children (Panadol for children) to reduce the heat and headache in children. Panadol is still used in children because the alternative (aspirin) in no way can be used to children. Prohibited aspirin to children because it can cause bleeding in the brain (brain hemorrhage) because the blood vessels children are soft and easily damaged by blood gas (diluted by aspirin blood clotting factor when inhibited thromboxane A2).
Although panadol are available at all stores, parents should be concerned with ask your doctor so that appropriate dose can be given to children to ensure that problems, liver damage can be avoided.
