Paracetamol and Caffeine

Image description COMPOSITION
Temrif Plus® tablet: Each tablet contains Paracetamol BP and Caffeine BP equivalent to Paracetamol BP 500mg and Caffeine BP 65mg.


Pharmacological Action
Temrif Plus® is the combination of Paracetamol (Acetaminophen) and Caffeine. It has analgesic and antipyretic properties. The presence of Caffeine increases the analgesic effect of Paracetamol. Paracetamol is one of the safest and most widely used analgesic and antipyretic. Caffeine is an alkaloid which is a theophylline- like Xanthine derivatives. By intermolecular association with Paracetamol, Caffeine increases the solubility and transmembrane permeation of Paracetamol. In addition, Caffeine increases the pain threshold and tolerance of pain. Caffeine has also an intrinsic power to raise vessel tone in the cranial of the brain, which provides another benefit to treat migraine and headache.

Mechanism of Action
The Mechanism of analgesic action has not been fully determined. Paracetamol acts predominantly by inhibiting prostaglandin synthesis in the central nervous system (CNS) and to a lesser extent; through a peripheral action by blocking pain-impulse generation. Caffeine is a mild CNS stimulant. Caffeine-included constriction of cerebral blood vessel, which leads to decrease in cerebral blood flow and in the oxygen tension of the brain, may contribute to relief of some types of headache. The addition of Caffeine to Paracetamol may provide a more rapid onset of action and /or enhanced pain relief with lower dosage of the analgesic.
