    Antipyretic medicines are used to reduce or relieve fever. Fever is a natural response of the body to an underlying condition, such as an infection or inflammation. While fever itself is not usually harmful, it can cause discomfort and other symptoms, and in some cases, it may be necessary to lower the body temperature. Antipyretic medications work by inhibiting the production of certain chemicals in the body that are responsible for raising body temperature. The most common antipyretic medications are nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as ibuprofen and aspirin, as well as acetaminophen (paracetamol). These medications can help alleviate fever and provide relief from associated symptoms such as headache, muscle aches, and chills. It is important to follow the recommended dosage and consult a healthcare professional if you have any concerns or if the fever persists.
