Paracetamol Coupon Details

Paracetamol is a widely distributed pain reliever worldwide. In some regions – the United States, Canada, Hong Kong, Iran, and Latin America – it is known as acetaminophen. The terms paracetamol and acetaminophen are both derived from a chemical name for the compound, para-acetylaminophenol. The brand name Tylenol is also derived from the scientific term.

Paracetamol is available over-the-counter in low doses for the management of minor aches and pain, and it’s also prescribed at higher doses for more severe pain. The onset of pain relief begins within approximately 11 minutes of oral ingestion and the drug’s half-life is 1-4 hours.

The Many Names of Paracetamol


Paracetamol has been marketed in the United States since 1953 and in the United Kingdom since 1956. In the US, it’s been best known as Tylenol. Anacin-3, Tempra, and Datril. In Israel, it’s known as Acamol. In most other parts of the world, paracetamol is most often marketed as Panadol, Efferalgan, Crocin, or Doliprane. Since the patent on the drug has expired, it is now appearing with an even wider variety of names.

Recommended Dosage


Paracetamol is available in a variety of forms: tablet, capsule, liquid, suppository, intravenous, and intramuscular. While children may prefer chewable or liquid paracetamol, adults usually swallow whole tablets.

Tablets sold over the counter are generally 500 mg each, and a recommended adult dosage is 1,000 mg. Adults who do not drink alcohol can take up to 4,000 mg per day. However, because paracetamol may be associated with liver damage, people who drink alcohol are advised to limit their dosage to 2,000 mg per day. Liver toxicity has been reported on rare occasions even when the dose is less than 2,500 mg/day.

Paracetamol: The Last Drug Standing


Paracetamol belongs to a class of drugs known as aniline analgesics. While other aniline analgesics have been discontinued for being carcinogenic, paracetamol is considered non-carcinogenic when used at recommended doses. The drug is also sometimes classified as an NSAID (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug), although its anti-inflammatory action is limited to certain tissues. It does work like other NSAIDs in that it inhibits the synthesis of prostaglandin.
