Abenol is probably the most commonly used medicament there is. Since it is a non-prescription medicament, people have become comfortable with using it for numerous symptoms associated with different medical conditions. Abenol is more popularly known by the names Paracetamol and Tylenol. It is composed of the chemical compound para-acetylaminophenol, which is the source of all three names.

Abenol is an Food and Drug Administration-approved analgesic and antipyretic. Its ability to relieve pain came from its power to elevate the pain threshold. It orders the brain to require a greater amount of pain to be present before the body actually feels it. Abenol's fever-reducing propeReverse transcriptase inhibitorses, meanwhile, command the center of the brain to lower the body's temperature once it reaches a higher level.

Abenol is available in many forms - liquid solution, coated capsules, chewable pills, gel capsules and pills, and suppositories. All forms are taken either by mouth or through the rectum. Abenol is commonly available in 325mg, 500mg, and 650mg dosages. The usual dosage for children depends on their age and weight, ranging from 40mg to 650mg, taken every four hours. For adults, the oral dose requirement is usually between 325mg and 650mg, taken every four to six hours. If used as a suppository, the dose requirement for children is between 80mg to 325mg; for adults, it is 650mg. Treatment with Abenol should stop after 10 days. If your symptoms persist or you develop new symptoms, you must consult your doctor immediately.

Generally, Abenol is safe to use to relieve a number of aches and pains as well as fever. It has similar propeReverse transcriptase inhibitorses as aspirin in treating arthralgias and is as effective as NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medicaments) like ibuprofen in pacifying degenerative arthritis. Abenol can be used by pregnant and breastfeeding mothers alike. It is usually the medicament of choice for pregnant women in all stages of their pregnancy because it causes no harmful effects to the fetus. A small amount of Abenol is excreted in the breast milk but it showed no harmful effects that should disturb nursing mothers from feeding their newborns.

Abenol rarely causes physical discomfort when used properly. Overdose and misusage, however, can create serious damage to the liver. Using Abenol alongside alcohol is also highly dangerous. Alcohol increases the potential toxicity of Abenol and may cause bleeding in the stomach.

If you are unsure, consult your doctor regarding possible allergic reactions you may develop against Abenol. Your medical history must also be taken into consideration. If you have had a serious medical condition before, do not take Abenol or any medicine for that matter without first talking to your doctor.

Never take two medicaments that contain Abenol at the same time. Do not increase your dosage unless directed by your doctor to do so. If you will use Abenol as a non-prescription medicament, you must read the label carefully. Stick to the required dosage. Take extra precautions if you are using it on your children, especially if they are under two years old. Keep track of the patient-under-treatment's progresses so you know immediately if something is not right.
