Paracetamol is about as effective as aspirin at relieving mild to moderate pain and reducing fever. But unlike aspirin, it has no anti-inflammatory effect.
Paracetamol infusion is given in the hospital. An infusion is a drip into a vein. Paracetamol may be given in this way either because a patient is unable to take medicines by mouth, or because a rapid effect is needed. This infusion may be given for the short-term relief of moderate pain, particularly following surgery. It may also be used for reducing fever in the short term.

ACECLOFENAC + PARACETAMOL TABLETS
Aceclofenac film-coated tablets are an oral non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) and are indicated for the relief of pain and inflammation in osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and ankylosing spondylitis. It is supplied for oral administration and should be swallowed whole with a sufficient quantity of water.
Aceclofenac is rapidly and completely absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract and circulates mainly as an unchanged drug following oral administration. Peak plasma concentrations are reached around 1.25 to 3 hours post-ingestion, and the drug penetrates into the synovial fluid where the concentration may reach up to 60% of that in the plasma.
Dosage : Dose is 200 mg daily, taken as two separate 100 mg doses, one tablet in the morning and one in the evening.
