Abstract

Paracetamol is the remaining para-aminophenol used in clinical practice for analgesia, being the active metabolite of the earlier, more toxic, drugs acetanilide and phenacetin. Paracetamol can be given orally, rectally, or parentally; has little anti-inflammatory activity; and is an effective analgesic and antipyretic (Fig. 1).
