Medicines are meant to cure pains and diseases.

The most common pain reliever in Philippines is Acetaminophen or popularly known as Paracetamol.

Paracetamol is a medication used for pain and fever; it is typically used for treatment of mild to moderate pain.

However, not all people are aware of the side effects of these medicines. There are important things that people should take into consideration when taking medicine, especially if they do self-medication. But because the benefits of the medicine are more important, people tend to disregard the fact that medicines can incur side effects to the body in the long run. These side effects may manifest right away after taking the medicine then will disappear shortly. Some are having trouble in breathing after taking a medicine while some experience hive or swelling of the face, lips, tongue, and throat. Some faint or experience nausea. These side effects maybe caused by a severe allergic reaction to the medicine so it is best to consult a physician before taking one.

There are side effects in using pain reliever based on research:


A Mexican Population-Study on Exposure to paracetamol and risk of Wheezing, Rhinitis and Eczema

In 3,493 Mexican children age of 6-7-year-old frequent paracetamol exposure significantly increased risk of Wheezing and Rhinitis and probably eczema.

Also, Tylenol is often linked to Asthma and other allergies nearly 323,000 children in the age of 13-14-year-old from 50 countries teens who regularly take paracetamol (Tylenol) were more than 2x as likely to have asthma. Risk of asthma in children was elevated, the risk of asthma and wheezing increase in both children and adults exposed in paracetamol.

Acetaminophen overdoses is the No. 1 cause of acute liver failure in the United Sates. It also causes 56,000 ER visits, 26,000 hospitalizations and nearly 500 deaths each year in the US.
