What is NapaDol®?

Paracetamol (acetaminophen) is a pain reliever and a fever reducer which is used to treat many conditions such as headache, muscle aches, arthritis, backache, toothaches, colds, and fevers. Combination of Paracetamol and Tramadol exerts a synergistic effect and subsides mutual side effects.
