Biogesic 500mg 20 Tablets
A good way to care for yourself and those you love when treating headaches, fever, and pain involves some rest, hot or cold compress, and the recommended dosage of Paracetamol (Biogesic), an analgesic-antipyretic (pain reliever and fever reducer). Distributed by Unilab, Paracetamol (Biogesic) comes in 500mg orange tablets and has been in the market since 1965.
What is Biogesic?
Biogesic is a trusted brand of paracetamol, a medication that is typically used to relieve mild to moderate pain and reduce fevers.
What are its main benefits?
It is used to relieve mild to moderate pain such as headache, backache, menstrual cramps, muscular strain, minor arthritis pain, toothache; and reduce fevers caused by illnesses such as the common cold and flu.
How does Biogesic reduce pain and fever?
Paracetamol seems to work by blocking chemical messengers in the brain that tell us we have pain. Paracetamol also reduces fever by affecting the chemical messengers in an area of the brain that regulates body temperature.
Who can take Biogesic?
Paracetamol is often recommended as one of the first treatments of pain because it gives relief for most people, even for children, breastfeeding and/or pregnant women, and the elderly.
How frequently should Biogesic be taken?
The amount of dosage and frequency depends on your age, weight, and the strength or concentration of the medicine. Adults and children 12 years and older usually take 1 to 2 500mg tablets orally every 4 to 6 hours. It is not recommended to take more than 4g (8 500mg tablets) of Paracetamol in a span of 24 hours because this can lead to overdose.
Acetaminophen = 500 mg
Paracetamol is one of the most common drugs used in the world, and is manufactured in huge quantities. The starting material for the commercial manufacture of paracetamol is phenol, which is nitrated to give a mixture of the ortho and para-nitrotoluene. The o-isomer is removed by steam distillation, and the p-nitro group reduced to a p-amino group. This is then acetylated to give paracetamol.
Dexbrompheniramine maleate = 1 mg
Dexbrompheniramine Maleate is the maleate salt form of dexbrompheniramine, an alkylamine derivative with anticholinergic and sedative properties. The antagonistic action of this agent blocks the activities of endogenous histamine, which subsequently leads to temporary relief from the negative histamine-mediated symptoms.
