WHEN SHOULD YOU NOT TAKE THIS MEDICINE?

  • If the patient is allergic to paracetamol or any ingredient in the product.
  • Avoid long-term use of paracetamol in patients with anemia or with heart, lung, kidney, or liver disease.



UNDESIRABLE EFFECTS

Paracetamol, when taken within the recommended dose and duration of treatment, has low incidence of side effects.

Skin rashes and minor stomach and intestinal disturbances have been reported.


WHAT OTHER MEDICINE OR FOOD SHOULD BE AVOIDED WHILE TAKING THIS MEDICINE?

  • Medicines which stimulate the enzymes responsible for the metabolic activation of paracetamol such as medicines for convulsion (e.g., phenobarbital) may increase susceptibility to the harmful effects to the liver.
  • Warfarin, a blood thinning medicine; an increase in the International Normalized Ratio (INR), which may serve as a sign of increased risk for bleeding, may be observed when using paracetamol and warfarin at the same time. Paracetamol increases the anticoagulation effect of warfarin.



WHAT SHOULD YOU DO IF YOU MISS A DOSE?

If a dose is missed, give the next dose if still needed for pain and/or fever and the subsequent dose every 4 hours (Biogesic 100 mg/mL, 120 mg/5 mL, 250 mg/5 mL Suspension) or every 4 to 6 hours (Biogesic 500 mg Tablet) thereafter.

Do not double the dose.


HOW SHOULD YOU KEEP THESE MEDICINES?

Keep the product out of reach and sight of children.

Do not store above 30°C.

  1. Eating disorder, nausea, vomiting, malaise, and excessive sweating;
