Paracetamol Pharmacodynamics
Non-narcotic analgesic, blocks COX1 and COX2 mainly in the CNS, affecting the centers of pain and thermoregulation. In inflamed tissues, cellular peroxidases neutralize the effect of paracetamol on COX, which explains the almost complete absence of anti-inflammatory effect. The absence of blocking effect on Pg synthesis in peripheral tissues explains its lack of negative effects on water-salt metabolism (Na+ and water retention) and gastrointestinal mucosa.

Indications
Used in children from 3 months to 12 years as:
– An antipyretic for acute respiratory illnesses, influenza, childhood infections, post-acute reactions and other conditions accompanied by elevated body temperature;
– Painkiller for pain syndrome of mild to moderate intensity, including: headache, toothache, muscle pain, neuralgia, pain from injuries and burns.
