for a 13 year old boy, you should give:

Adult regular-strength tablets (325 mg): 2

Adult extra-strength tablets (500 mg): 1

per dose of paracetamol

avoid no more than 4 doses per day

yes, paracetamol can be given with neurofen.

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.
