Paracetamol Production Cost Analysis 2020

Paracetamol, also known as acetaminophen, belongs to a group of medicines called analgesics, that is, painkillers. Besides serving as a pain reliever, paracetamol is also used to treat fever, cold, and flu symptoms. It does not have significant anti-inflammatory effects and is generally considered safe for all age groups, including children. It is widely consumed as an oral medication but can also be taken by directly injecting it into a vein. The effects of this medicine last between two and four hours. It is usually sold in combination with other medications. Unlike aspirin, paracetamol does not prevent blood from clotting, and therefore, it is considered safe for people who have concerns with blood coagulation.

Paracetamol comprises of a benzene ring core, where one hydroxyl group and the nitrogen atom of an amide group substitute the ring in the para (1,4) pattern. It is an extensively conjugated system, and the amide group is acetamide (ethanamide). It relieves us from pain by reducing the production of prostaglandins inside our brains, which are responsible for causing swelling and inflammation. However, the exact mechanism of paracetamol remains unknown. Phenol serves as the starting material for the commercial manufacture of paracetamol. It is most widely consumed in its tablet or capsule form, including liquid suspension, suppository, intravenous, and effervescent forms.
