Paramol Caplets are suitable for the treatment of headaches, migraines, fever, period pain, dental pain, and muscular pain.
For the short term treatment of acute moderate pain which is not relieved by paracetamol, ibuprofen or aspirin alone and as an antipyretic in conditions such as: headache; migraine period pain; toothache and other dental pain; back pain; muscular and joint pains and neuralgia. Route of Administration: Oral Recommended Doses and Dosage Schedules: Paramol Tablets should, if possible be taken during or after meals. Adults & Children over 12 years: One or two tablets every four to six hours. Do not exceed 8 tablets in any 24 hour period. Do not take for more than 3 days continuously without medical review. Children under 12 years: Not recommended The Elderly: Caution should be exercised when increasing the dose in the elderly. Contraindications: Hypersensitivity to paracetamol, or any other constituents, respiratory depression, obstructive airways disease. Diarrhoea caused by poisoning until the toxic material has been eliminated, or diarrhoea associated with pseudomembranous colitis. Acute alcoholism, convulsive disorders, head injuries, and conditions in which intracranial pressure is raised. Special warnings and precautions for use: Paramol Tablets should be given with caution to patients with allergic disorders and should not be given during an attack of asthma. Dosage should be reduced in the elderly, in hypothyroidism and in chronic hepatic disease. An overdose can cause hepatic necrosis. Paracetamol: Care is advised in the administration of paracetamol to patients with severe renal or severe hepatic impairment. The hazard of overdose is greater in those with non-cirrhotic alcoholic liver disease Dihydrocodeine: Care is advised in the administration of dihydrocodeine to patients with hypotension, adrenocortical insufficiency, prostatic hypertrophy, shock, obstructive and inflamatory bowel disorders, acute abdominal conditions, recent gastrointestinal surgery, gallstones and diseases of the biliary tract, myasthenia gravis, a history of arrhythmias and in patients with a history of drug abuse or emotional instability. This product should be avoided in patients with risk of paralytic ileus. Dihydrocodeine is partially metabolised by CYP2D6. If a patient has a deficiency or is completely lacking this enzyme they will not obtain adequate analgesic effects. Estimates indicate that up to 7% of the caucasian population may have this deficiency. However, if the patient is an ultra-rapid metaboliser there is an increased risk of developing side effects of opioid toxicity even at low doses. General symptoms of opioid toxicity include nausea, vomiting, constipation, lack of appetite and somnolence. In severe cases this may include symptoms of circulatory and respiratory depression. Estimates indicate that up to 1 to 2% of the caucasian population may be ultra-rapid metabolisers. Administration of pethidine and possibly other opioid analgesics to patients taking a monoamine oxidase inhibitor (MAOI) has been associated with very severe and sometimes fatal reactions. If the use of dihydrocodeine is considered essential then great care should be taken in patients taking MAOIs or within 14 days of stopping MAOIs. Do not exceed the recommended dose. Do not take with any other paracetamol-containing products. Immediate medical attention should be sought in the event of an overdose, even if you feel well, because of the risk of delayed, serious liver damage. If symptoms persist, consult your doctor. Keep out of the sight and reach of children.
