Paragesic 500 Suppositories
Paracetamol Analgesic & antipyretic
Each suppository contains:
Paracetamol 500 mg
Paracetamol, the active ingredient in Paragesic Suppositories, is similar in its analgesic and antipyretic effects to acetylsalicylic acid (aspirin). However, Paracetamol is better tolerated as it causes no gastric irritations and does not induce the Reye syndrome.
The analgesic action of paracetamol probably results from inhibition of the synthesis of prostaglandins.
The antipyretic activity is mediated through the hypothalamic heat- regulating centers to produce peripheral vasodilatation and beat loss.
– Symptomatic relief of influenza, colds and feverishconditions associated with infections.
– Pain such as headache, toothache, neuralgia.
– Suitable for use by patients who are sensitive to acetylsalicylic acid.
