PARACETAMOL 500 mg Tablets
Each tablet contains:Paracetamol 500 mg
Paracetamol has analgesic and antipyretic effects similar to those of aspirin. However, it has no anti-inflammatory effect and does not share the antirheumatic properties of the salicylates. It is rapidly and practically completely absorbed from the gastro-intestinal tract. The concentration in plasma reaches a peak in 30 to 60 minutes and the plasma half-life is about 2 hours after therapeutic doses. It is distributed into most body tissues.
For the relief of mild to moderate pain and fever.

SIDE EFFECTS AND SPECIAL PRECAUTIONS:
Skin rashes and other allergic reactions may occur occasionally. The rash is usually erythematous or urticarial but sometimes more serious and may be accompanied by drug fever and mucosal lesions.

The dose should be reduced in renal functional impairment.
Paracetamol should also be given with care to patients taking other drugs that affect the liver such as the barbiturates.
