The combination of the painkillers hydrocodone and paracetamol is called hydrocodone/paracetamol (or hydrocodone/acetaminophen) (acetaminophen). Pain ranging from mild to severe is treated with it.
(इसका उपयोग मध्यम से गंभीर दर्द के इलाज के लिए किया जाता है)
The purpose of this combo drug is to treat moderate to severe pain. Both an opioid painkiller (hydrocodone) and a non-opioid painkiller are present (acetaminophen). The brain-based effects of hydrocodone alter how your body perceives and reacts to pain. Additionally, acetaminophen helps lower a fever.
