For Fever: “I rate it 5, I've had a very high fever and after taking paracetamol it only made it worse. That is why, they suggested me to take paracetamol every 4 hours, as a result, my fever is now gone but my stomach is suffering. I currently have stomach/intestinal disturbances due to paracetamol. This medicine is 50:50”
For Muscle Pain: “Paracetamol The only thing that works for me without any side effects, takes about 20 minutes to kick in, fantastic for muscle pain and anxiety attacks and insomnia, I take two 500mg tablets every 4 hours (four times a day), for two days then I'm okay.”
For Pain: “It is the ABSOLUTE WORST PAINKILLER to take when you have period pain. It does did not ease my period pain at all. I would not recommend it to anyone . DON'T TOUCH IT. I am very lucky now that I do not take Paracetamol anymore.”
For Pain: “I have found Tylenol and other equivalents to be relatively ineffective in reducing pain associated with my Degenerative Disk Disease (Neck Pain, Severe Headaches, Lower Back Pain). I have had some success with tramadol coupled with muscle relaxants, Tylenol with codeine and Vicodin (5 and 7.5 mg). I also had good results with Aleve, until I started to have stomach problems.”
For Pain: “Administered an IV bolus of 600mg of Paracetamol to a patient in severe to moderate pain and patient suddenly started sleeping off but that was not expected so I checked and found the pulse unrecordable and BP not measurable. Quickly gave and IV bolus of saline and restored vitals and subsequently monitored patient for the next six hours. I think the effect of rapid administration IV should be hammered on.”
For Fever: “paracetamol is very fine medicine”
For Fever: “Very Helpful”
