How does the drug work?
Paracetamol belongs to the class of drugs known as antipyretics (fever reducing) and analgesics (painkiller). Paracetamol acts on the temperature-regulating region of the brain, which results in increased blood flow across the skin which causes sweating and heat loss thereby reducing fever. It acts as a painkiller by increasing the pain threshold. Promethazine belongs to the class of antihistamines. Histamine is an inflammatory mediator that is released from mast cells in response to allergic reactions. The release of histamines results in allergic symptoms. Promethazine blocks the release of histamines, thus, causing reduction of the allergy symptoms.
