Fever, common cold, and influenza, headache, toothache, earache, body ache, myalgia, neuralgia, dysmenorrhoea, sprains, colic pain, back pain, post-operative pain, postpartum discomfort, inflammatory pain, and post-vaccination pain in children are among the conditions for which paracetamol is prescribed. It’s also used to treat rheumatic and osteoarthritic pain, as well as joint stiffness.


Paracetamol is 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.

Patients who have taken barbiturates, tricyclic antidepressants, and alcohol may show a diminished ability to metabolize large doses of Paracetamol. Alcohol can increase the hepatotoxicity of Paracetamol overdosage. Chronic ingestion of anticonvulsants or oral steroid contraceptives induces liver enzymes and may prevent the attainment of therapeutic Paracetamol levels by increasing first-pass metabolism or clearance.


It is not recommended if you have a known hypersensitivity to paracetamol.
