Paracetamol is a widely used over-the-counter analgesic (pain reliever) and antipyretic (fever reducer). Paracetamol is inside the classification of mild analgesics. It is commonly used for the relief of headaches and other minor aches and pains and is a major ingredient in numerous cold and flu remedies. In combination with opioid analgesics, paracetamol can also be used in the management of more severe pain such as post-surgical pain and providing palliative care in advanced cancer patients. Though acetaminophen is used to treat inflammatory pain, it is not generally classified as an NSAID because it exhibits only weak anti-inflammatory activity.
Many laboratory tests involve the detection of either a medication overdose and underdose. In doing so, these tests measure two things simultaneously. The first is a direct measurement of the amount of a pharmaceutical substance in the body. The second is an indirect measure of the disease, condition, or metabolic pathway that pharmaceutical affects.
