What are Paracetamol Tablets?

Paracetamol Tablets are a type of medication used to relieve pain. Each tablet contains 500mg of the active ingredient paracetamol, a common painkiller that can help with a variety of aches, pains, and fevers.

What are Paracetamol Tablets used for?

Paracetamol Tablets are primarily used for pain relief. They can help alleviate symptoms of conditions such as headaches, toothache, backache, rheumatic and muscle pain, period pain, and the discomfort and feverishness of colds and flu. They can also be used to reduce fever.

How do Paracetamol Tablets work?

Paracetamol Tablets work by reducing the production of prostaglandins in the brain and spinal cord. Prostaglandins are produced by the body in response to injury and certain diseases. One of their effects is to sensitise nerve endings, causing pain. By reducing their production, paracetemol effectively relieves pain and reduces fever.

Paracetamol Tablets are suitable for most adults and children over the age of 10. However, they may not be suitable for people with liver or kidney problems, those who drink large amounts of alcohol, or those who are allergic to paracetemol. Always consult your doctor or pharmacist if you are unsure.
