Brief Summary:

The purpose of this study was to compare the efficacy and tolerability of acetaminophen, dipyrone and ibuprofen to fever control in children.

For the efficacy asses were compared:

  • the time to start the action;
  • the action duration;
  • the difference between the basal temperature and the lower temperature in the study period.

For the tolerability asses all adverse events were recorded, as well as your intensity and the relation to the treatment.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Antipyretic efficacy [ Time Frame: Temperature was verified 15, 30, 45 and 60 minutes, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8 hours after the administration of the drug. ]
    The antipyretic efficacy was assessed comparing the time to the beggining of the action of the drugs, the difference between the final and inicial temperature and time of action.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Adverse Events [ Time Frame: Adverse Events were verified at 15, 30, 45 and 60 minutes, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8 hours after the administration of the drug. ]
    All adverse events were recorded.
