Other important information

Do not drink alcohol (e.g. wine, beer, spirits) whilst taking this medicine. Do not use paracetamol unless prescribed by your doctor if you have an addiction to alcohol or liver damage.

If you are already taking other pain medication containing paracetamol do not use these tablets without first speaking to your doctor or a pharmacist. Never take more Paralief effervescent tablets than recommended. A higher dose does not increase pain relief; instead it can cause severe liver damage. The symptoms of liver damage occur first after a few days. It is important therefore that you contact your doctor as soon as possible if you have taken more Paralief effervescent tablets than recommended in this leaflet.
