Reviews of Rapidol
The usual tablet form of drugs causes difficulty in swallowing, especially in children. However, not all drugs can be crushed or powdered, since the effectiveness of the drug is reduced. But this does not apply to the dispersed form of tablets - they need to be absorbed in the mouth (under the influence of saliva, they quickly dissolve) or can be dissolved in a small amount of water, juice or milk. In this case, we are talking about Rapidol. Many parents respond positively to the drug Rapidol for children, which is easily soluble in any liquid and does not cause problems when taken. For adults, this form of paracetamol is also convenient: you do not need to drink it with water, since the tablet quickly dissolves in the mouth, immediately enters the bloodstream without exerting a negative effect on the gastric mucosa, it acts quickly - the analgesic effect is achieved after 10 - 20 minutes. The tablet does not contain dyes and tastes good.
Paracetamolantipyretic most commonly used in pediatrics in view of its effectiveness and high safety profile. In the reviews, there are opinions that Rapidol has a more advantageous form of release compared to syrups and suspensions, which, when opened, can be stored for no more than 7 days in the refrigerator, and then unused syrup needs to be poured. Rapidol tablets are stored for 2 years and can be used as needed. Some are not satisfied with the short duration of the drug (4 hours) compared with Nurofen.
Paracetamol does not belong to the group of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, therefore erosive gastrointestinal lesions and bronchospasm when it is taken are extremely rare. Most often, when taking the drug, itching and rashes are noted. It should be noted that despite the relative safety of any antipyreticsit should be used in children if the fever exceeds the permissible limit (above 38-39.5 ° C) and leads to a violation of the functions of the central nervous system and the cardiovascular system.
