Ramol (Paracetamol) is a nonopiate, nonsalicylate, analgesic and antipyretic, so it does not
cause GIT irritation. It relieves pain by elevating the pain threshold centrally by blocking
pain-impulse generation through a peripheral action and it reduces the fever by its effect on the
hypothalamic heat regulating center, resulting in peripheral vasodilation , increasing blood
flow through the skin ,sweating and heat loss.The effect of Paracetamol mainly is due to the
inhibition of prostaglandins biosynthesis. Ramol is rapidly absorbed orally, the initial rapid
response occurs in less than half an hour and within 2 hours peak levels are achieved and it is
metabolized in the liver and excreted via the bile and the kidney.
