CONTAINS PARACETAMOL. Do not
take anything else containing
Paracetamol while taking this
medicine. Talk to a doctor at once if
you take too much of this medicine
even if you feel well. This is because
too much paracetamol can cause
delayed, serious liver damage.
Do not use: if you are allergic to Paracetamol or any other ingredients.
Take care: Check with a doctor or pharmacist before using the product if you suffer from severe
kidney or severe liver disease (including alcoholic liver disease).
Using other medicines: Cholestyramine (lowers cholesterol) may reduce absorption of paracetamol.
Metoclopramide and Domperidone (used to relieve sickness) may increase the absorption of
Paracetamol. Therefore, the Cholestyramine should not be taken within one hour if maximal
analgesia is required.
Prolonged regular daily use of Paracetamol may increase the effects of blood thinning drugs (e.g.
Warfarin), with increased risks of bleeding. Occasional uses have no significant effect.
Talk to your doctor or a pharmacist if you are taking some antibiotics (chloramphenicol), antisickness treatments (metoclopramide, domperidone), some treatments for diarrhoea caused by gall
bladder disease. Each sachet contains 2.7g of sucrose. If you have been told by a doctor that you
have an intolerance to some sugars, contact your doctor before taking this medicinal product. This
should be taken into account in patients with diabetes mellitus. Each sachet contains 140mg of
