- 5 ml suspension contains 120 mg paracetamol
Paracetamol acts predominantly by inhibiting prostaglandin synthesis in the central nervous system (CNS) and, to a lesser extent, through a peripheral action by blocking pain impulse generation. Paracetamol produces antipyresis by acting centrally on the hypothalamic heat regulating centre to produce peripheral vaso-dilation resulting in increased blood flow through the skin, sweating and heat loss.
Paracetamol Alkaloid contains paracetamol which is an analgesic (a pain killer that reduces aches and shivers) and antipyretic (it reduces high temperature). Paracetamol Alkaloid relieves the pain of teething, toothache and sore throats and reduces the fever often associated with colds and 'flu' and childhood infections such as chichen pox, whooping cough, measles and mumps.
