Many illnesses, including headaches, muscle aches, arthritis, backaches, toothaches, colds, and fevers, can be treated with paracetamol. It reduces pain in mild arthritis but has no impact on the underlying joint swelling and inflammation.
Paracetamol is the most commonly used OTC medication for fever and pain relief. It provides quick and effective relief from headaches, toothaches, backaches, menstrual pain, and musculoskeletal pain associated with/without fever. Paracetamol reduces the intensity of pain signals sent to the brain and may also inhibit the release of prostaglandins, which increase pain and body temperature.
