INDICATIONS Kanawati Kanadol is indicated for the temporary relief of simple pain such as headache, toothache, teething and fever or discomfort associated with colds and flu.
CONTRAINDICATIONS Hypersensitivity to paracetamol, which resulted in face and tongue swelling, and other symptoms. If any sign of hypersensitivity occurs, discontinue the product and tell the doctor.
Side EFFECTS Paracetamol may cause allergic reactions and skin rash. The rash usually appears as red areas or allergic wheals. Allergic reactions (primarily skin rash) or reports of hypersensitivity secondary to Paracetamol are rare and generally are controlled by discontinuation of the drug and, when necessary, symptomatic treatment.
WARNINGS Paracetamol in massive overdosage may cause hepatotoxicity in some patients. In adults and adolescents, hepatotoxicity may occur following ingestion of greater than 7.5 to 10 g over a period of 8 hours or less. In children, amounts less than 150 mg/kg are highly unlikely to produce hepatotoxicity. In both adults and children, toxicity associated with Paracetamol is almost invariably caused by ingestion of quantities of the drug that are significantly above the recommended dosage range. Hepatotoxicity following greater than the recommended dose of Paracetamol may be enhanced by both fasting and/or chronic alcohol ingestion. Doctor should be consulted if no relief is obtained from the recommended dosage of Kanawati Kanadol (oral drops). Kanawati Kanadol oral drops should not be administered to children for pain for more than 5 days or for fever for more than 3 days unless directed by a doctor.
Pregnancy And lactations You should consult a doctor if this drug is prescribed to pregnant or breastfeeding women
Dosage And Administration For children under 12 year of age, the recommended dose is 10-15 mg/Kg every 4-6 hours, but not more than 5 times (50-75 mg/kg) daily.Kanawati Kanadol (oral drops) may be given, by using the graduated dropper, alone or mixed with formula, milk, juices etc. The Recommended pediatric dosing of Kanawati Kanadol (Oral Drops) by weight and age is given in the following table. Weight(kg) Age dose (mg) dose (ml) 2.0 - 5.4 0-3 months 40 0.4 5.5 - 7.9 4-11 months 80 0.8 8.0 - 10.9 12 - 23 months 120 1.2 11.0 - 15.9 2-3 years 160 1.6
OVERDOSE If more than 150 to 200 mg/kg or an unknown amount was ingested, obtain a plasma Paracetamol level as soon as possible, but not sooner than 4 hours following ingestion. In children, an acute overdosage of less than 150 mg/kg has not been associated with hepatic toxicity. In patients referred for plasma Paracetamol levels, gastric emptying with syrup of ipecac or administration of activated charcoal should be considered. If the plasma Paracetamol level can be obtained within 8 hours postingestion, initiating acetylcysteine treatment is not necessary until the result is obtained. However, if the estimated time postingestion is approaching 8 hours, then acetylcysteine treatment should be initiated immediately. Serious toxicity has been extremely infrequent following an acute Paracetamol overdose in young children, possibly because of differences in the way children metabolize Paracetamol.
