Paracetamol-why is it in vogue? I hear and read everywhere that paracetamol is a VERY insecure drug...

I hear and read everywhere that paracetamol is a VERY dangerous drug and even a slight overdose can ruin your liver for life or even kill in the blink of an eye. How is it then that every doc now says to run it for everything from common cold to slipped disc to operation pain? It is in cold remedies and cough syrups.It is also available surrounded by nearly all kinds of medication for small babies and children and I have see way too many mums giving babes too much syrupy mixture near it in.

When I was growing up we always took aspirin or soluble aspirin. I know that Aspirin can rationale stomach problems but can never remember anyone being ill with it. Why is paracetamol very soon the painkilling drug of choice??
Answers:    In most cases doctors recommend paracetamol because it does not make happen bleeding as aspirin can, they give it to people like diabetics who suffer arthritics.?,resembling any drug it is dangerous, but doctors seem to think it is the best adjectives rounder for illness....
Paracetamol is less harsh that aspirin. Its better to nick paracetamol for mild pain that a stronger painkiller such as ibuprofen or codeine based medication and you should start with one pill if the pain is not too bad,a moment ago because the adult dose is usually 2 pills doesn't mean you need to appropriate two if the pain is not too bad. Obviously you shouldn't take paracetamol every afternoon but for mild pain every now and then its fine.
