For a long time, researchers have been guessing a mechanism that is very much complex in nature. The mechanism process of acetaminophen has been a topic of mystery for a decade because multiple functions are happening at a single time and the structure is very unique that the researchers would not be able to keep an eye on it. There are some explanations present in the environment which determines it as it involves few chemical messengers of inflammation and pain. Others recognize the brain mechanism and spinal cord function that how the process of neurotransmission happens in between. Researchers were trying to find out every possible result which is necessary for this study but unfortunately, none of the proposals satisfies or supports the evidence as it was very complex and shows different characteristics and nature of the acetaminophen. In the grand scheme of things, the mystery might seem like minutiae and this mystery has a lot of secrets buried with it. Many previous experiments were performed to know this phenomenon but none fully gives a brief and clear explanation of the bonds in it and how they form a structure that is used by billions of people.
The usage of acetaminophen has great use in the industry and the magnitude of people using it is very high. Since the people used it daily, the production is also very much high. The clinical use of this was seeing from many decades with more than 27 billion doses which were sold in 2009 alone and the amount increased concerning the time. But on the other hand, it has serious disadvantages which can make you sick and you may fall under a long-lasting disease, for instance, the liver damage is its most occurring problem it makes understanding its mechanism more than a minor detail.
Drug safety is very important to avoid the side effects of having a high dose if there is a difference between a safe dose and a toxic dose and this difference is very narrow. So accordingly it is much easy to take too much and cause a serious trip to the emergency ward and there are other things which can happen due to this, for instance, having permanent heart disease and if it happens, you have to spend a lot of money for the treatment and you must be suffering from alternate pain and loss of health all the time. It is also said that if the dose is not limited, you may end up losing your life .The death rate from accidental acetaminophen are very common and it is investigated to have more death if the root cause is not found.
