Pharmacology of the drug Efferalgan 500mg
ATC Code: NO2B EO1
Paracetamol is an effective analgesic and antipyretic. The drug has no effect on the cardiovascular and respiratory systems, and it does not cause stomach irritation or bleeding like salicylates.
Paracetamol is easily absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract with peak plasma concentrations occurring after 30 minutes to 2 hours after ingestion. It is distributed in most body tissues; It crosses the placenta and is present in breast milk. Plasma protein binding is negligible at normal therapeutic concentrations but increases with increasing concentrations.
Elimination half-life varies from about 1 to 3 hours.
Paracetamol is metabolized in the liver and excreted in the urine mainly as a glucuronide and sulphate complex. Less than 5% is excreted unchanged as paracetamol.
A small hydroxylated metabolite is usually produced in very small quantities by mixed functional oxyases in the liver and is usually detoxified by combining with liver glutathione, which can accumulate after paracetamol overdose and cause liver damage.
