HOW PARACIP TABLET WORKS

PARACIP TABLET contains two medicines namely paracetamol and caffeine. Paracetamol is a pain-relieving medicine with fever-reducing properties. It reduces fever and pain sensations by blocking the release of certain chemicals within the body (such as prostaglandins) that causes fever, pain, inflammation and swelling.

Caffeine is a brain stimulant. It reduces pain sensation by interfering with the pain signals travelling between the damaged nerves and the brain. It also improves the pain-relieving actions of paracetamol and reduces tiredness and boredom among the affected patients.
