Yes, it is okay to combine fever and other medicines under your paediatrician's
guidance. Note that the medication for fever acts only on fever and helps in
reducing body’s temperature. It does not have any effect on the disease causing
germs or toxins of the disease present in the blood. For example, if the child
is suffering from malaria, the doctor will prescribe two different medications.
One for fever - to cool down the body and other for malaria disease. Both need
to be given together for complete recovery. If the child has malaria, then the
malarial germs won’t die in a day. It will take at least 2 to 3 days to leave
the body after you start your child’s medication. Since the germs are already
there in the body, the child will have fever too. So the fever medication needs
to be given too. Parents should note one thing: the medication for fever only
lowers the body’s temperature; it does not destroy the toxins of the disease.
