Feva Suspension 60 ml: Each 5 ml suspension contains Paracetamol BP 120 mg.
Feva is the formulation of Paracetamol which is one of the safest and most widely used analgesic and antipyretic. Feva produces analgesic action by elevation of the pain threshold and antipyresis through action on the hypothalamic heat regulating center. Feva exerts significantly milder side effects and most unlikely to produce many of the serious side effects associated with aspirin and other NSAIDs. Paracetamol is rapidly and completely absorbed from the GIT following oral administration and from rectum after rectal administration. The mean half-life of absorption from the upper small intestine is only 7 minutes. The drug is extensively metabolized in the liver and it has a plasma half-life of 1.5 to 3.0 hours. Paracetamol is not bound to plasma proteins to any extent.
