Introduction

Paracetamol is analgesic and antipyretic agent. Paracetamol is the active metabolite of phenacetin, responsible for its analgesic effect. Paracetamol is a weak prostaglandin inhibitor in peripheral tissues and possesses no significant antinflammatory effects. Paracetamol is one of the most important drug used for the treatment of mild to moderate pain when an antinfalmmatory effect is not necessary. Paracetamol is preferred over aspirin as an analgesic/antipyretic for patients in whom aspirin is contraindicated, such as those who have a history of gastric ulcer or a coagulation disorder.
