The Danger of Panadol

Updated on March 25, 2011

This was e-mailed to me by my friend who is fond of sending Health Tips to all her amiable friends, including me.

This is a confession made by a lady who also believe that the best way to relieve pain is by taking Panadol.

Panadol and it's definition

Panadol is a trademark for the drug acetaminophen or paracetamol. It is an analgesic (pain-relieving) drug. It is also antipyretic (reduces fever).

It eases mild to moderate pain caused by headache, muscle ache, backache, minor arthritis, common cold, toothache, or menstrual cramps; fever.

I used to remember the commercial about Tylenol when I was an elementary grader. We even sang the jingle in school. But I wonder why the radio ad was pull out from the local station we used to listen to.

Adverse Reactions

Babies and women are mostly the most affected people when taking drugs, like Panadol. Men have the urge to violate the prescription of their doctors. My personal experience in taking drugs, especially when a had fungi allergy called mildew simplex, was I discontinue taking my medication because I felt dizzy and vomiting. I didn't know that what I'm taking on board ship had steroids on it.

So in layman's terms, the synthetic derivative poses a danger to our health. The more we pop up pills into our mouth, the more we are enslave to the modern facets of medicine. Let's read this first person account that can help us understand the risks when taking pain reliever.

PANADOL (Thanks to the lady who shared this useful info.)
My husband was working in a hospital as an IT engineer, as the hospital is planning to set up a database of its patient. And he knows some of the doctor quite well. The doctors used to tell him that whenever they have a headache, they are not willing to take PANADOL PARACETAMOL.

In fact, they will turn Herbal Medicine or find other alternatives. This is because Panadol is toxic to the body, and it harms the liver. According to the doctor, Panadol will reside in the body for at least 5 years.
And according to the doctor, there used to be an incident where an air stewardess consumes a lot of Panadol during her menstrual as she needs to stand all the time. She's now in her early 30's, and she needs to wash her kidney (DIALYSIS) every month.

As said by the doctor that whenever we have a headache, that's because it is due to the electron / Ion imbalance in the brain.
As an alternative solution to cope with this matter, they suggested that
we buy 1 or 2 cans of isotonic drink ( eg.100PLUS), and mix it with drinking water according to a ratio of 1:1 or 1:2 (simply, it means one cup 100plus, one cup water or 2 cups water).My husband and I have tried this on several occasions, and it seems to work well.

Another method will be to submerge your feet in a basin of warm water so that it brings the blood pressure down from your throbbing head.

I did rephrase this account that my friend sent to me. It's a little bit scary because I had a friend, a lady nurse practitioner, who also suffered from the bad effects of taking Tylenol. Because during her duties at the local community hospital, she seldom sat when she had menstrual period.

So, if I were you, there are still an alternative to combat pain that succumb to our body. At home, I'm trying to complete my medicinal garden and know the properties of every herb that I planted.

      @Romano Arnesto: It's so dangerous to take panadol these days. It's safer to take organic supplements than by synthetic drugs.

      @crystolite: At first, I was aghast of the information I researched. Taking medicines affect our body system that its residue will leave side-effects on the main organs.

      Reading between the lines is the technique we should use when dealing with doctors. I think, I'll write a hub about them.

      I can say that almost all the doctors are liars. They should be ashamed of what they're doing now because they are being dictated by these commercial pharmaceuticals that are peddling and promoting those synthetic drugs that can ruin our health. They should review their Hippocratic Oath.
