  • Interchangeability between paracetamol tablets marketed in Palestine. Is there a quality reason for ahigher price?
  • Published at:Eastern Mediterranean Health Journal
  • ABSTRACT The objective of this study was to evaluate the quality of 10 commercial paracetamol products


    available on the Palestinian market. We carried out a survey on the price of all paracetamol tablet products and


    assessed their quality. To assess quality, all products were examined visually for their organoleptic properties,


    tested for weight uniformity, friability, disintegration, and dissolution profile, and assayed for paracetamol


    content. All imported products were 2 to 3 times more expensive than the locally produced generic products.


    Based on our testing procedure, all paracetamol products were equivalent to the innovator product except for 1


    imported product which fell below the approved specifications developed for the innovator product
