This medicine is used to treat mild to moderate pain (from headaches, menstrual periods, toothaches, backaches, osteoarthritis, or cold/flu aches and pains) and to reduce fever.
Used according to the instructions and, for me, along with Ibuprofen, helps immensely. I found that 2 X Paracetamol 500mg plus 1 X Ibuprofen 400mg together twice a day managed my jaw problem (a vascular malformation, operated on by general anaesthetic almost a week ago, since when I am taking the same painkillers as instructed, plus an antibiotic for one week). There are other ways of taking Paracetamol, but the way I did it seemed to work. There were no side effects.
