Usually when a person gets sick we go to the doctor for medicine or treatment. In this treatment, the medicine prescribed in the doctor's prescription seems to be written in foreign language and even if the doctor or the pharmacist has mentioned the name, we can’t even pronounce perfectly. In this corona, a medicine has come to mind as if God has fulfilled the desire of every person to become a doctor, and as if someone is expressing his problem and the problem is not finished, the name "Dolo" bursts out of our mouth. We even give the name of this medicine with such precision that no one knows about this medicine and we are the doctors.

That's all there is to it. Today we are going to know about this Corona hero named DOLO. What is this Dolo? Where does it come from? Who makes it? How is it different from other drugs like it? And for what reasons has this DOLO been protecting us from a terrible disease like corona? We will also find out what are the different uses of this drug and what can be harmed by its frequent use?
What is Dolo-650?
Dolo-650 is a common analgesic (painkiller) and antipyretic (to reduce fever), a medicine used by doctors to treat headaches, migraines, toothaches, and menstrual cramps, joint or bone pain, and muscle aches. Complaints of mild to moderate pain, including pain in the pelvis and reduction of fever, are prescribed. When an unnatural condition develops in our body or an external bacterium or virus enters the body and tries to do damage or injuries the body, a chemical secretion called "prostaglandins" is spread in the body which makes us feel pain or fever. Prostaglandins also have many benefits and cause pain, inflammation and fever. The most important ingredient in Dolo 650 is paracetamol which prevents prostaglandins from reaching the body and brain. As well as antipyretic content works by resetting the temperature regulation center in our brain.
What is paracetamol and when was it discovered?
The main chemical in Dolo 650 medicine is "paracetamol" and it is also known as acetaminophen. Paracetamol is less effective but less harmful than other drugs such as ibuprofen, aspirin and caffeine. Paracetamol is also often used in combination with aspirin and caffeine.
The earliest paracetamol was developed by Harmon Northrop Morse in 1877, but it was tested on humans as well as its efficacy by Joseph von Mering in 1887, making Joseph Mering the first inventor of paracetamol. This was followed by the German multinational drug company Bayar, which first started making paracetamol as a drug. Paracetamol was developed worldwide after 1955 to be used at home without a doctor's prescription. For 70 years after the discovery of paracetamol, it has been given to people without any other significant research, after which research on the use of this chemical in various ways has been banned in various countries due to its harmful effects on many human beings.
The US FDA (Food and Drug Administration) has banned the use of several types of paracetamol due to its potential for carcinogenicity, based on numerous researches on paracetamol. As well as in many countries around the world there is a partial band on the use of paracetamol due to overdose of paracetamol and many other side effects.
