2. Before you take Extra Power Pain Control Caplets
You should not take Extra Power Pain Control Caplets if you:
• are allergic (hypersensitive) to aspirin or any other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory
drugs (NSAIDs), paracetamol, caffeine or any of the other ingredients in Extra Power
Pain Control Caplets (see section 6, Further information). Symptoms may include
rhinitis (runny nose, itchy rash, swollen face, mouth
or tongue or asthma attack.
• have had ulcers of the stomach or small intestine
(peptic ulcer disease)
• suffer from haemophilia, any other blood clotting
disorders or are taking any medicines to prevent
blood clotting
• suffer from gout.
Talk to your doctor or pharmacist before taking
Extra Power Pain Control Caplets if you:
• suffer from kidney disease or liver disease,
particularly if caused by alcohol
• suffer from alcoholism
• suffer from asthma, particularly if your asthma is worsened by aspirin
• if you have nasal polyps (inflamed swellings inside the nose)
• if you suffer from indigestion (dyspepsia)
• if you have an infection
• if you are a woman trying to conceive
• suffer from heart disease and/or high blood pressure
• suffer from diabetes
• suffer from glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) deficiency (an enzyme
deficiency that can cause anaemia)
• are dehydrated.
Caution should be exercised when taking paracetamol products prior to (less than
72 hours before) or at the same time as intravenous busulfan.
Your blood, kidney and liver should be monitored during prolonged use as blood,
kidney and liver disorders may develop.
This medicine contains paracetamol; do not take with any other
paracetamol-containing products at the same time. Aspirin can increase the
time it takes your blood to clot; you should not take this medicine several
days before any scheduled surgery appointments.
This medicine should not be given to children under 16 years unless
specifically advised by your doctor (e.g. to treat Kawasaki’s disease), due to
the association between aspirin and Reye’s syndrome, a very rare disease
that can cause damage to the brain, liver and could be fatal.
This product belongs to a group of medicines which may impair the fertility in
women. This effect is reversible on stopping the medicine.
Taking other medicines
Please tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking or have recently taken any
other medicines, including medicines obtained without a prescription. The following
medicines can affect or be affected by Extra Power Pain Control Caplets:
• medicines used to treat bacterial infections (e.g. quinolones such as enoxacin,
pipemidic acid and ciprofloxacin, sulphonamide antibiotics and isoniazid used to
treat tuberculosis)
• medicines used to treat epilepsy (fits) (e.g. carbamazepine, phenobarbital,
primodone, sodium valporate). If you take sodium valproate with this medicine
you may increase the likelihood of bleeding
• medicines used to treat depression (e.g. fluvoxamine), Selective Serotonin
Re-uptake Inhibitors (SSRIs) such as venlafaxine): if taken with aspirin products
you may increase the likelihood of bleeding
• medicines used to treat asthma (e.g. theophylline or zafirlukast)
• medicine used to thin the blood and stop the blood clotting (anticoagulants- e.g.
warfarin, heparin, streptokinase, clopidogrel and ticlopidine): if you take one of
these medicines with aspirin products you may increase the likelihood of bleeding
• medicines used to treat water retention (diuretics - e.g. spironolactone and
acetazolamide)
• medicines used to treat high blood pressure (ACE Inhibitors, Angiotensin-II
Receptor Antagonists and calcium channel blockers e.g. verapamil): taken with
aspirin products these medicines may not be as effective and you may suffer from
kidney problems
• medicines used to treat gout (e.g. probenecid or sulfinpyrazone). Phenylbutazone
may reduce the effect of aspirin products.
• metoclopramide and domperidone (used to treat sickness and nausea)

time it takes your blood to clot; you should not take this medicine several
days before any scheduled surgery appointments.
This medicine should not be given to children under 16 years unless
