About Biocetamol 150 mg Injection 2 ml

Biocetamol 150 mg Injection 2 ml belongs to the group of medicines called analgesic and antipyretic agents, primarily used to relieve mild to moderate pain and to treat fever. Pain is a symptom triggered by the nervous system, which causes uncomfortable sensations in the body. Fever occurs when the body's temperature goes above the average body temperature (98.6°F or 37°C).

Biocetamol 150 mg Injection 2 ml contains 'Paracetamol,' which prevents the formation of chemical messengers called prostaglandins, which cause pain and swelling at the injury sites. This process reduces the mild to moderate pain and inflammation at the injured or damaged site. Biocetamol 150 mg Injection 2 ml also affects an area of the brain that regulates body temperature known as the hypothalamic heat-regulating centre. Thus, it reduces fever.

Your doctor will decide the dose and duration of Biocetamol 150 mg Injection 2 ml based on the severity of your medical condition. Common side effects of Biocetamol 150 mg Injection 2 ml include constipation, nausea, and vomiting. These side effects are not familiar to everyone and vary individually.

The tolerance level of pain might vary from person to person. Pain can be generalized (overall body aches) or localized (affecting a specific area of the body).

    Fever: When the body's temperature goes above the average temperature of 98.6°F (37°C), it is called fever or pyrexia. It is considered as a response of the body's immune system to external factors.
