Paracetamol is used for treatment of mild to moderate pain due to headache, muscle aches, backache, joint pain, arthritis, the common cold, flu, toothache, teething pain and menstrual cramps. Paracetamol also reduces fever in adults and children. This medication is often used in people who cannot take anti–inflammatory (e.g. due to stomach ulcer), as it is gentle on the stomach.
Use Paracetamol exactly as directed by your doctor. Do not exceed the prescribed dosage as it may be very unsafe and life threatening.
Paracetamol can cause dizziness. These effects can worsen if Paracetamol is taken with alcohol or certain other drugs. Use Paracetamol with caution. Don't drive or perform other possibly dangerous tasks until you know how you react to this medication. If your symptoms don't improve or if they worsen, contact your doctor. Paracetamol should be used only by the patient for whom it has been ordered. Do not take less or more or take it more often than directed by your physician.
