Palliative Poetry
Paracetamol Pharmacodynamics Poem
How does paracetamol work, no one knows?

Via Mew is mainly how all the opioid goes!

NSAIDS are easy, COX one and two,

inhibit those thromboxanes says my literatury review.

 


How does paracetamol work, no one knows?

Codeine metabolites via cyp2d6, we propose

Amitriptyline what a drug! anticholinergic all the way.

Pregabalin and Gabapentin save the day!

 


How does paracetamol work, no one knows?

Tramadol binds to mew I suppose

Ahh, but it also inhibits serotonin and NE

alas this drug isn’t everyones cup of tea

 


How does paracetamol work, no one knows?

This is the question I want to foreclose

Some say COX3, a mythical molecule to see

Other say seretonin, mew or cannaboids with glee

 


How does paracetamol work, I think I know,

For WHO step 1,2 and maybe 3 headache and menstrual flow,

for cramps and tooth ache and anything tragic

It clearly works with a touch of magic!

 


One extra verse of a warning, paracetamol is not all craic

Do not mess around, be careful and get the NAC.
