About METAPLUS TABLET
METAPLUS TABLET belongs to the group of mild analgesics (pain killer), and antipyretic (fever-reducing agent) used to treat mild to moderate pain including headache, migraine, toothache, menstrual period pain, osteoarthritis pain, musculoskeletal pain, and reducing fever. Pain and fever are caused by the activation of pain receptors due to the release of certain natural chemicals in our body like prostaglandin.
METAPLUS TABLET contains ‘Paracetamol’ which prevents the release of a natural chemical (prostaglandin), causing a sensation of pain, inflammation, and fever. METAPLUS TABLET also has an antipyretic effect and can reduce body temperature in cases of fever. METAPLUS TABLET works by resetting the temperature-regulating centre in the brain, thus decreasing temperature in fevers caused due to illness, chemotherapy, or other reasons.
