Paracetamol is a common pain relief medicine which is used to treat a wide variety of conditions including:
For mild to moderate pains and fever, paracetamol can provide effective relief and help you get on with your day-to-day activities.
Paracetamol can be taken alongside other pain relievers including aspirin, ibuprofen and codeine. You may find some combination treatments which combine paracetamol with ibuprofen, such as Nuromol, and paracetamol with codeine, such as co-codamol.
Cold and flu treatments also contain paracetamol, among other ingredients, to effectively provide relief from the typical symptoms. Paracetamol is effective at reducing the fever attributed with coronaviruses such as flu, Covid-19 and the common cold.
You can buy paracetamol in the UK over-the-counter and online from registered pharmacies. Paracetamol is often found in cold and flu medicines due to its antipyretic (fever reducing) and analgesic (pain relieving) effects.
If you have difficulty taking tablets, paracetamol is available in effervescent tablets which are dissolved into water.
To order paracetamol online from Prescription Doctor's registered UK pharmacy, simply select the formulation you prefer and select "start order".
