Important information regarding Paracetamol:

During the colder months viruses like colds and flu can cause many unpleasant symptoms.

Paracetamol is a safe and effective painkiller when used correctly and is widely available in many over the counter cold and flu remedies to treat aches, pains and fevers. 

Always ensure you read the packaging and leaflet to avoid accidental overdose of Paracetamol.

Paracetamol overdose can damage your liver and can even be fatal.

If you think you may have taken too much Paracetamol, phone NHS 111 for advice.
