Need weight: I need to know the weight of your baby and not the age to calculate the correct dose of the medication. 250mg seems like a bit high of a dose for a 19month old toddler. Please resubmit question with a weight attached next time. Also, fever does not absolutely need to be "treated" - if child is happy and taking fluids well, just let fever be - it helps fight off infections. ...Read more

Important to give the right dosages. Empaped is paracetamol. Dosage for paracetamol is 15mg per kg body weight. Empaped is either 125mg or 250mg. Fenamin and paracetamol can be taken together. I usually advise halve the dosage of both.
