Composition

Paracetamol(500 mg)

SALT INFORMATION

Paracetamol(500 mg)

TYPICAL USAGE

Paracetamol is used for the relief of mild to moderate pain in conditions such as headache (including migraine), toothache, ear pain, joint pain, pain of menstruation, fever, feverish colds, and flu.

SIDE EFFECTS

Side effects of paracetamol are usually rare, and include allergic reactions such as shortness of breath, abnormalities of blood cells, skin reddening, blisters or rash, swollen facial features, or a runny nose. Overdose (more than 4 g in adults and more than 2 g in children) may cause severe liver damage.

DRUG INTERACTION

Cholestyramine, metoclopramide and domperidone may alter the effects of paracetamol. Use of paracetamol with warfarin may increase the risk of bleeding. Paracetamol may increase the effects of chloramphenicol. 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 categorized as an analgesic (painkiller) and antipyretic (fever reducing) drug. Paracetamol reduces pain by increasing the pain threshold. It reduces fever by acting on the temperature-regulating region of brain, resulting in increased blood flow across the skin, sweating and heat loss.
