Compositions
Parmol 120 Syrup : Paracetamol 120 mg/5 ml.

Parmol 250 Suspension : Paracetamol 250 mg/5 ml.


Actions and Pharmacology
Paracetamol is an analgesic-antipyretic. These effects may be due to inhibition of prostaglandin synthesis in the CNS and through a peripheral action by blocking pain-impulse generation. It is rapidly absorbed orally, metabolised in the liver, and excreted in the urine.


Indications
For relief of minor types of pain such as headache, myalgias, toothache and febrile conditions.


Contraindications
It is contraindicated in patients with known hypersensitivity to paracetamol.


Precautions
Caution in patients with hepatic or renal function impairment.
Check with physician if symptoms do not improve or if fever lasts longer than 3 days or recurs.

Chronic use should be avoided, unless otherwise directed by physician.


Side/Adverse Effects
In recommended therapeutic dosage, paracetamol is usually well tolerated. Rarely, hypersensitivity and haematological reactions may occur.


Drug Interactions
Risk of hepatotoxicity with single toxic dose or prolonged use of paracetamol may be increased in chronic alcoholics or in patients regularly taking other hepatic enzyme-inducing agents.


Overdose
Clinical features : Nausea, vomiting, epigastric discomfort, hypoprothrombinaemia, hepatic or renal failure and metabolic acidosis or coma in very severe cases.

Treat overdosage by emesis or gastric lavage, if indicated. Administer N-acetylcysteine orally (start within 10 hours after ingestion), 140 mg of 20% solution per kg as a loading dose, followed by 70 mg/kg every 4 hours for 3 days with the necessary supportive treatment if required.
