      Since Paracetamol was invented, many lives have been saved due to its effective ability to reduce often the most severe temperature. Most of us use this handy drug for all kinds of ailments, however many people are unaware of the way it works. It is potentially a dangerous drug if used inappropriately, such as using it for long periods of time, or if it is taken in quantities larger than the recommended dose.

      Paracetamol is a pain killer that is used for many conditions related to pain and fever, and should be only used for short-term relief. Paracetamol tablets provide effective relief of mild to moderate pain and is safe and effective when taken as directed on the label.

      Paracetamol reduces the chemicals that cause inflammation within the body, therefore, the way you feel. Pain is altered which causes you to become less responsive to pain. It also affects a part of the brain called the hypothalamus, which helps to regulate normal temperature, and through its specific actions can help reduce fever.
