Pharmacology

Paracetamol is an analgesic and antipyretic with just a minor anti-inflammatory effect. Paracetamol (Acetaminophen) is hypothesized to work largely in the central nervous system (CNS), improving pain threshold by blocking both isoforms of the cyclooxygenase enzymes COX-1, COX-2, and COX-3, which are involved in prostaglandin (PG) formation. Paracetamol is a para aminophenol derivative that has analgesic, antipyretic, and anti-inflammatory effects. One of the most extensively used, safest, and fastest acting analgesics is paracetamol. It is well tolerated and free of aspirin’s different adverse effects.
