How Aeknil works

AEKNIL (Paracetamol) is a drug with antipyretic (fever-reducing) and analgesic (pain-relieving) properties. It has a weak anti-inflammatory action as well.

Paracetamol reduces fever by inhibiting the formation and release of prostaglandins in the central nervous system and inhibiting the action of endogenous pyrogens at the hypothalamic thermoregulatory centers.

The mechanism of analgesic action of Paracetamol is not fully established. Paracetamol may produce analgesia by inhibiting prostaglandin synthesis centrally and elevating the pain threshold.
