3 thoughts on “If fever stimulates our body’s natural immune defences is it bad to take medicine that lowers fever?”

  1. Sometimes yes, but only for low fevers. You can’t let it get too high. Then you should take medicine or see a doctor.

  2. If the fever is high enough, the condition could be extremely hazardous. Brain damage and even death can occur as a result.

  3. Assuemdly, seeing as how a fever is the sign that the immune system is fighting an invader, but if the medicine only lowers your temperature (not sure how its doing that but ok :/) then i’m not sure of any negative effects that would cause. but i’m not a doctor…
