Paracetamol is a common drug used to relief pain and treat fever. It was firstly designed in 19th century and now has various methods, including original synthesis, green synthesis and direct synthsis, to be produced. However, it can also cause severe adverse effects, such as overdose, liver damage and skin reaction.
Paracetamol, also known as acetaminophen, is a medicine used to treat moderate spain and fever. It is also used for severe pain, such as cancer pain and pain after surgery, in combination with opioid pain medication. Paracetamol is generally safe under the guidance of a doctor. The recommended maximum daily dose for an adult is three to four grams, while higher doses may lead to toxicity. It does not have significant anti-inflammatoryactivity. But how it works is not entirely clear.
