Always consult your physician for the change of dose regimen or an alternative drug of choice that may strictly be required.

Mechanism Of Action: Paracetamol is thought to act primarily in the CNS, increasing the pain threshold by inhibiting both isoforms of cyclooxygenase, COX-1, COX-2, and COX-3 enzymes involved in prostaglandin (PG) synthesis. Paracetamol indirectly blocks COX, and that this blockade is ineffective in the presence of peroxides. paracetamol is effective in the central nervous system and in endothelial cells but not in platelets and immune cells which have high levels of peroxides. The antipyretic properties of paracetamol are likely due to direct effects on the heat-regulating centres of the hypothalamus resulting in peripheral vasodilation, sweating and hence heat dissipation.
