Paracetamol oral suspension can be used for benign to moderate pain, to reduce the fever. It can be used to alleviate signs of colds, flu, headaches, toothache, sore throat, nerve ache, period pain and other basic aches and pains.
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).

However, you are welcome to book an appointment with a health expert at Click Pharmacy to discuss how best to use this product.
