Crocin DS Suspension 60 ml belongs to the group of mild analgesics (pain killer), and antipyretic (fever-reducing agent) used to treat mild to moderate pain including headache, migraine, toothache, menstrual period pain, osteoarthritis pain, musculoskeletal pain, and reducing fever. Pain and fever are caused by the activation of pain receptors due to the release of certain natural chemicals in our body like prostaglandin.
Crocin DS Suspension 60 ml contains 'Paracetamol' which prevents the release of a natural chemical (prostaglandin), causing a sensation of pain, inflammation, and fever. Crocin DS Suspension 60 ml also has an antipyretic effect and can reduce body temperature in cases of fever. Crocin DS Suspension 60 ml works by resetting the temperature-regulating centre in the brain, thus decreasing temperature in fevers caused due to illness, chemotherapy, or other reasons.
