Drug Interactions

Paracetamol is a commonly used analgesic and antipyretic medicine that is readily available both via prescription and over-the-counter (OTC). Fortunately, there have been few clinically significant medication interactions identified. Hepatotoxicity from an overdose of the paracetamol metabolite NAPQI is likely to be exacerbated by enzyme-inducing medications. Because of inconsistencies between observational studies and those in healthy volunteers, there is a lot of debate about the potential for warfarin to interact with it and boost its anticoagulant effects. Aside from that, no severe medication interactions with therapeutic doses of paracetamol have been documented in humans.

Because of its low risk of causing allergic reactions, this drug can be administered in patients who are intolerant to salicylates and those with allergic tendencies, including bronchial asthmatics. When giving paracetamol to children, specific dose instructions must be followed.


Hypersensitivity to the active ingredient.

Mode of actions

Paracetamol acts as an analgesic by inhibiting the production of pain impulses in the peripheral nervous system. Antipyresis is caused by the inhibition of the hypothalamus heat-regulating region. Its ineffective anti-inflammatory properties are due to the suppression of prostaglandin production in the central nervous system.
