Can I take antipyretic and analgesic to suppress fever and muscle aches after vaccination?
Now when everyone hears the vaccine, they think of various side effects. The most common ones are fever and sore muscles and bones. If I get the vaccine, can I buy medicine to eat? Alleviate this uncomfortable situation? If yes, what medicines can I choose? I think this is the question that everyone will think about before getting vaccinated.
In the Q&A published by the Japanese Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare (similar to Taiwan's Ministry of Health and Welfare), we can see very clear answers. The following editor will translate it for you:
Q: Can I take commercially available antipyretic and analgesic drugs to suppress high fever and pain after vaccination?
A: The high fever and pain after vaccination can be relieved by taking commercially available antipyretic and analgesic drugs, but the following people should consult their physicians and pharmacists before taking them.
- Those who are taking other medicines, pregnant women, breastfeeding people, the elderly, those who are being treated for gastrointestinal, duodenal ulcers, and patients with renal insufficiency. (Medications that can be taken will be limited)
- People with allergies to medicines
- Severe pain, people with prolonged high fever (the article does not write how to deal with this condition, basically seek medical treatment immediately.)
- People with atypical side effects after vaccination ( fever for more than two days, or sore throat, nasal discharge, loss of taste, difficulty breathing, etc. If the above symptoms occur, it may be a viral infection, and it is recommended to seek medical advice )
In addition, prophylactic antipyretic and analgesic medications are not recommended until symptoms occur.
*The types of antipyretic and analgesic drugs on the market include Acetaminophen and Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drug (Ibuprofen and Loxoprofen), which can be used for antipyretic and labor pain after vaccination. (Although paracetamol can be used for younger people and those who are pregnant or breastfeeding, the target age etc. vary by product, so please consult your physician before use.)

- Since the vaccine is an exercise of the body's immune system, I suggest that if it is not very painful, there is no need to take medicine. If you want to take it, you can try EVE A tablets, which are relatively mild and generally relieve pain.
