Antipyretic - Definition


Definition


Antipyretic is a medication used to treat a fever. Numerous molecules have antipyretic effects including paracetamol and non-steroidal anti-inflammatories that have the advantage of analgesic properties. Paracetamol, the most commonly used, has the advantage of being fast-acting, only requiring about thirty minutes to take effect and having very few side-effects. In high doses however, it can be toxic for the liver. Medicinal plants also allow us to treat fevers: these are the febrifuges. Other plants known for their effects against fevers are wormwood, eucalyptus, birch bark, or wild chicory.
