How does it Paracetamol oral suspension work?

Paracetamol relieves pain by reducing the production of prostaglandins in the brain and spinal cord.

The body produces prostaglandins in response to injury and certain diseases. One of the actions of prostaglandins is to sensitise nerve endings so that when that area is stimulated, it causes pain, presumably to prevent us from causing further harm to the area. 

By reducing the prostaglandins in the brain and spinal cord, it is thought that paracetamol may increase our pain threshold.

Paracetamol does not exhibit anti-inflammatory effects but can be used in children and adults when pain relief is required.

How effective is Paracetamol?

Paracetamol is a suitable analgesic (painkiller) for children but can be given to adults for mild to moderate pain that does not require anti-inflammatory activity.

The body produces prostaglandins in response to injury and certain diseases. One of the actions of prostaglandins is to sensitise nerve endings so that when that area is stimulated, it causes pain, presumably to prevent us from causing further harm to the area. 

Paracetamol relieves pain by reducing the production of prostaglandins in the brain and spinal cord.

By reducing the nerve-sensitising prostaglandins in the brain and spinal cord, it is thought that paracetamol may increase our pain threshold so that although the cause of the pain remains, we can feel it less.

Paracetamol reduces fever by affecting an area of the brain that regulates our body temperature (the hypothalamic heat-regulating center).
