Dosage/Direction for Use
Adults ≥12 years old: 1-2 tablets every ≥4 hours, or as prescribed by the physician. Maximum Dose: 8 tablets in 24 hours.
Toxicity is extremely rare following administration of recommended dose. Nevertheless, massive overdose of acetaminophen may adversely affect the liver of some people and signs or symptoms of overdose may be delayed for up to 1 week after ingestion of the massive dose. Nevertheless, liver damage is largely reversible if the patient is treated early, thus, prompt medical attention is essential in all cases of suspected overdose even if there is no sign or symptom. Administration of N-acetylcysteine or methionine may be required.
Patients who are hypersensitive to acetaminophen or any excipient of Panadol.
Special Precautions
If symptoms persist or if patient has been diagnosed with liver or kidney impairment, seek medical advice.
The anticoagulant effect of warfarin and other coumarins may be enhanced by prolonged regular daily use of acetaminophen with increased risk of bleeding; occasional doses have no significant effect.
This medicine contains sodium methyl-, sodium ethyl-, and sodium propyl-parahydroxybenzoates (E219, E215, E217) which may cause allergic reactions (signs or symptoms may possibly be delayed). For all cases of suspected allergy, stop taking this medicine and seek medical advice immediately.
