Paracetamol 500 mg Effervescent Tablets

Paracetamol 500 mg effervescent tablets are a mild pain killer that reduces the body temperature when someone has a temperature.  They are recommended for use in treatment of mild to moderate pain and/or fever.

Soluble Paracetamol 500mg are known as soluble tablets. This is a tablet that is designed to be dissolved in water before being swallowed.

How Does Paracetamol Soluble Work?

A common question we are often asked is “How does paracetamol soluble work?”

Effervescent tablets are designed to dissolve in water and allow for easier consumption/release. Each tablet is a group of ingredients compressed into a dense mass, which is then packaged into blister packs.

Once a tablet has been dissolved and drank, the body has an easier time absorbing the ingredients into the blood stream. This is because it skips the step where a normal tablet would have to be broken down by stomach acid.

For further information on “How does Paracetamol soluble work?” ask your doctor or refer to the patient information leaflet, here.
