Acetaminophen Production Cost Analysis 2020
Acetaminophen or paracetamol or APAP is a medication used to treat pain and fever. Generally, it is used for mild to moderate pain relief. It is given typically orally or rectally but is also available by injection into a vein. APAP is related to a class of drugs called analgesics i.e. the pain relievers and antipyretics i.e. fever reducers. Although the exact mechanism of action of acetaminophen is still unknown, it may reduce the manufacturing of prostaglandins inside our brain. Prostaglandins are known as the chemicals that cause inflammation and swelling. Acetaminophen or paracetamol is considered safe at recommended doses. The prescribed maximum daily dose for an adult is 3 to 4 grams.
Acetaminophen can be easily found in several common prescription combination drugs, like Butalbital, Endocet, Fioricet, Hycotab, Hydrocet, Hydrocodone bitartrate, Lortab, Percocet, Phenaphen, Sedapap, Tapanol, Tylenol with codeine, Tylox, Ultracet, Vicodin, and Zydone.
It is the most widely taken analgesic worldwide. Moreover, it is recommended as first-line therapy in pain conditions by the World Health Organization or WHO. It is also used for its antipyretic effect that helps in curing fever. This drug was initially approved by the U.S. FDA in 1951 and is available in several forms such as syrup, regular tablets, effervescent tablets, injection, suppository, and other forms.
