The science of caffeine and paracetamol
Paracetamol exerts its analgesic and antipyretic effect by inhibition of prostaglandins.1 On the other hand, the antagonism of adenosine receptors and inhibition of cyclo-oxygenase activity at some sites may explain caffeine’s adjuvant properties.2,4
Paracetamol or acetaminophen is one of the most used analgesic and antipyretic over-the-counter drugs globally.1
Do you know that contrary to popular believe, caffeine is not considered an addictive compound?3
First discovered in 850 A.D., caffeine was extracted as an active compound in 1819. It is the most common legal psychoactive drug and is a chemical relative of theophylline (used in treatment of asthma).2,3 Known for some of its effects such as increasing metabolic activity and heart rate, alertness, wakefulness and concentration, it is now combined with analgesics to increase absorption from the stomach. 2,3
