PYREGEM-l. V. Infusion
Paracatamol 1000 mg
Paracetamol is a non-opiate para-aminophenol derivative that exhibits analgesic and antipyretic activity. The
precise mechanism of the analgesic and antipyretic properties of paracetamol has yet to be established; it
may involve central and peripheral actions.
Paracetamol IV provides onset of pain relief within 5 to 10 minutes after the start of administration. The peak
analgesic effect is obtained in 1 hour and the duration of this effect is usually 4 to 6 hours. Paracetamol IV
reduces fever within 30 minutes after the start of administration with duration of the antipyretic effect of at
least 6 hours.
