Pharmacology

Paracetamol has analgesic and antipyretic properties and its anti-inflammatory activity are weak. Paracetamol (acetaminophen) is believed to act primarily on the central nervous system, increasing pain threshold by inhibiting the two isomers of cyclooxygenase COX1, COX2, and COX3 that are involved in prostaglandin (PG) synthesis. Paracetamol is a derivative of p-aminophenol, which has analgesic and antipyretic effects and weak anti-inflammatory activity. Paracetamol is one of the most widely used, safest, and fast-acting pain relievers. It is well tolerated and does not have the various side effects of aspirin.

Interactions of Napa 60 ml

Patients taking barbiturates, tricyclic antidepressants, and alcohol may have a reduced ability to metabolize large doses of paracetamol.

Long-term use of oral contraceptives or steroidal contraceptives can induce liver enzymes and may prevent therapeutic levels of paracetamol from being achieved by increasing metabolism or first-pass clearance.
