Unfortunately, there are some countries that still insist on Nimesulide for fever and is combined with other fever drugs like paracetamol that can make the product even more toxic to the liver. Please bear in mind that fever is not really your enemy. High temperature of the body is actually a condition that tells you there is an ailment that needs to be diagnosed and treated.

Simply bringing down fever with strong hypothermic medicines like nimesulide can be dangerous as was evident in Bangladesh some years ago few years ago. About 12 children were given this medication and they all died because the real disease,, encephalitis, remained undiagnosed and not treated.
