is a common analgesic
and antipyretic drug
that is used for the relief of fever
, and other minor aches and pains. Paracetamol is also useful in managing more severe pain, allowing lower dosages of additional non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs
(NSAIDs) or opioid
analgesics to be used, thereby minimizing overall side-effects. It is a major ingredient in numerous cold
medications, as well as many prescription analgesics. It is considered safe for human use in recommended doses, but because of its wide availability, deliberate or accidental overdoses
are fairly common.
