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.
Care needs to be taken with paracetamol. As it appears in other medications .Always consult a doctor or pharmacist if you have to take paracetamol for any length of time . It is readily available and a safe and effective drug if taken as directed.However, if symptoms are not relieved or worsen..consult a Doctor or Pharmacist right away.
I use it very sparingly and it is more effective like that anyway as there is the potential to damage kidneys and liver if taken long term. I try to use once or twice a week when pain is unbearable. I am allergic to all other pain killers so is my only option.
