Drug Interaction

Anticoagulant dosage may require reduction if paracetamol medication is prolonged. Paracetamol absorption from immediate release preparations is increased by drugs which increase gastric emptying e.g. metoclopramide, and decreased by drugs which decrease gastric emptying, e.g. propantheline, antidepressants with anticholinergic properties, narcotic analgesics. However, concurrent administration of metoclopramide may reduce the absorption of paracetamol from this extended release dosage form, as it accelerates gastric emptying and intestinal transit. Paracetamol may increase chloramphenicol concentrations. The likelihood of paracetamol toxicity may be increased by the concomitant use of enzyme inducing agents such as alcohol or anticonvulsant drugs.

Over Dose

Paracetamol overdose may cause hepatic failure due to prolonged exposure of paracetamol in the blood from the extended release form.Immediate medical management is required in the event of overdose even symptoms of overdose are not present.


Do not store above 30 o C. Keep away from light and out of the reach of children.
