Hello, yes it is safe. You may use for high fever or intense pain especially if he weighs above 70 kg. Otherwise restrict to upto 10-15 mg per each kg each dose. Can be repeated every 4 to 5 hours.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
