About Rapidole

The usual tableted form of drugs causes difficulties at a proglatyvaniye, especially in children. However not all medicines can be shattered, or to crush in powder as efficiency of drug at the same time decreases. But it does not belong to the dispersed form of tablets — they need to be rassasyvat in a mouth (under the influence of saliva they are quickly dissolved) or it is possible to dissolve in an insignificant amount of water, juice or milk. In this case it is about Rapidola. Many parents positively speak of drug Rapidol for children which is easily dissolved in any liquid and does not cause problems at reception. Such form of paracetamol is also convenient for adults: it is not necessary to wash down with water as the tablet is quickly dissolved in a mouth, at once gets to a blood stream, without having negative effect on mucous a stomach, works quickly — the analgesic effect is reached in 10 — 20 minutes. The tablet does not contain dyes and is nice to the taste.

Paracetamol the antipyretic which is most often applied in pediatrics in a type of its efficiency and a high profile of safety. In responses opinions that Rapidol has more favorable form of release in comparison with syrups and suspensions which when opening a bottle it is possible to store no more than 7 days in the refrigerator meet, and then unused syrup needs to be poured out. Tablets Rapidol are stored 2 years and they can be used as necessary. Short time of effect of drug (4 hours) in comparison with the Nurofen does not arrange some.

Paracetamol does not belong to group of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs therefore erosive damages of a gastrointestinal tract and a bronchospasm at its reception meet extremely seldom. Most often at administration of drug the skin itch and rashes are noted. It should be noted that despite relative safety any antipyretics need to be applied at children if fever exceeds an admissible limit (above 38-39,5 °C) and leads to disturbance of the TsNS functions and cardiovascular systems.
