Side Effects Of Mara Moja

Nausea and Vomiting

Mara Moja, and any other drug that is taken orally, has a chance of irritating the stomach Mucosa. This irritation is the one responsible for the feeling of nausea, and sometimes vomiting.

Don’t be scared, this is usually rare, or might not last for long. If you experience excessive vomiting, you should stop the drug, and consult a physician who could prescribe an alternative painkiller that could work well for you.

Reyes Syndrome

I know this is a fancy word. Reyes syndrome is a disorder that presents itself in children after taking aspirin. Not all children who take aspirin will present with the condition, but they are at risk of developing it. It manifests itself in signs and symptoms like vomiting and confusion or seizures. The disorder affects the brain and the liver causing them to swell.

To be safe, avoid giving your child aspirin, and also remember that it is a key ingredient in Mara Moja Tablet. Each Mara Moja dose contains aspirin. There are better alternatives for children, like Panadol Junior. You could use it.

If your child experiences any of these symptoms, please rush them to the nearest facility.
