- TERAMOL Syrup
- How does it work?
- TERAMOL is Paracetamol, the safest, most preferred, fast-acting and non- narcotic analgesic antipyretic. It is a metabolite of phenacetin and is not related to acetylsalicyclic acid and therefore exerts little or no pharmacologic effect on the cardiovascular, respiratory or gastrointestinal system, on acid-base regulation, platelet function, bleeding time or excretion of uric acid. TERAMOL is a suitable useful analgesic-antipyretic in patients in whom aspirin is contraindicated (e.g. hypersensitivity, peptic ulcer, prolonged bleeding time and other untoward reactions to aspirin). TERAMOL is effective in a wide variety of arthritic and rheumatic conditions involving musculoskeletal pain as well as the pain of headache, dysmenorrhea, myalgias, neuralgias and pain associated with minor trauma and surgical procedures. Also ideal for lowering fever accompanying influenza, common colds, tonsilitis, tuberculosis and other infections.
