Fast 500 mg tab
FAST (Paracetamol) is a clinically proven analgesic and antipyretic.
FAST produces analgesia by elevation of pain threshold and antipyresis through action on the hypothalamic heat regulating center.
These effects are thought to be related to inhibition of prostaglandin synthesis. FAST is equivalent to Aspirin in analgesic and antipyretic effectiveness and it is unlikely to produce many of the side effects associated with Aspirin and Aspirin containing drugs. FAST has greater tissue selectivity than Aspirin and other NSAIDs.
