After taking the drug, after 15 - 50 minutes the maximum concentration is observed in the blood. The distribution of the agent through the tissues proceeds uniformly, binding to plasma proteins is weak. Paracetamol is excreted by the kidneys, the half-life of substances in the body is observed from one to three hours. Completely the drug is excreted from the body every other day.

Dosing and administration

Elevated doses of paracetamol cause intoxication of the body. Lethalization of liver cells leads to a disruption of its functions, incl. Coma (even a lethal outcome is possible). There is also a risk of necrosis of the renal tubules, which can lead to death of the patient. Symptoms of an overdose on the first day are manifested by a feeling of nausea, severe sweating, a general malaise. The next day there is some improvement in health, a slight pain in the abdomen. The liver increases in size, the activity of bilirubin increases, the daily amount of urine decreases. On the third day, jaundice of the skin appears, the function of blood coagulability is disrupted, blood sugar is reduced, and a hepatic coma sets in.

In case of drug overdosage, gastric lavage is necessary in the first six hours, then symptomatic treatment, introduction of SH-group donors, dialysis (removal of the end products of metabolism and excess fluid from the body) is required.

Interactions with other drugs

Padeviks, when taken concomitantly with monoamine oxidase inhibitors and other drugs that depress the central nervous system, increases their toxicity and therapeutic effect.

Drugs that stimulate microsomal oxidation in the liver (rifampicin, ethanol, classical antidepressants, etc.) can lead to severe intoxication even with a slight overdose of paracetamol.

Paracetamol together with zidovudine increases the likelihood of developing neutropenia (a disease in which the number of cells that destroy foreign bacteria in the body is reduced in the blood).

Myelotoxic drugs increase the likelihood of impaired hematopoiesis.

When taking anticoagulants, strict medical supervision is necessary.

The excretion of chloramphenicol slows down when taken with paracetamol.
