Patient Reviews: How Paracetamol Has Made a Difference

Buy Paracetamol online

Paracetamol is a common pain relief medicine which is used to treat a wide variety of conditions including:

  • Fever
  • Headaches
  • Joint pain
  • Muscle pain
  • Period pain
  • Toothache

For mild to moderate pains and fever, paracetamol can provide effective relief and help you get on with your day-to-day activities.

Paracetamol can be taken alongside other pain relievers including aspirin, ibuprofen and codeine. You may find some combination treatments which combine paracetamol with ibuprofen, such as Nuromol, and paracetamol with codeine, such as co-codamol.

Cold and flu treatments also contain paracetamol, among other ingredients, to effectively provide relief from the typical symptoms. Paracetamol is effective at reducing the fever attributed with coronaviruses such as flu, Covid-19 and the common cold.

You can buy paracetamol in the UK over-the-counter and online from registered pharmacies. Paracetamol is often found in cold and flu medicines due to its antipyretic (fever reducing) and analgesic (pain relieving) effects.

If you have difficulty taking tablets, paracetamol is available in effervescent tablets which are dissolved into water.

To order paracetamol online from Prescription Doctor's registered UK pharmacy, simply select the formulation you prefer and select "start order".

How does Paracetamol work?

While the mechanism of Paracetamol as a pain reliever is not yet fully understood, it is often thought that Paracetamol stops the body from making pain-causing chemicals called prostaglandins.

Paracetamol reduces fevers by promoting sweating and dilating blood vessels closer to the skin.

Together, the two mechanisms help to reduce pain and fever.

How do I take Paracetamol?

Take one or two paracetamol tablets every 4 to 6 hours as required.

Swallow capsules and tablets with a glass of water.

Paracetamol can be taken with or without food.

Do not take more than 8 paracetamol tablets or capsules in any 24 hours period.

Always follow the instructions of a doctor or pharmacist.

Paracetamol side effects and cautions

All medicines, including those bought over-the-counter, carry the risk of side effects. While you may not experience any of them, it's important to remain aware and vigilant of the side effects to ensure the safety.

When taken correctly, paracetamol rarely causes side effects.

For further information regarding the safety of paracetamol, we advise you to read the patient information leaflet which comes supplied. You can also view the patient information leaflet for Paracetamol online.


Do not take Paracetamol if you are allergic, or have previously experienced an allergic reaction, to Paracetamol, any products which contain paracetamol, or any other excipients listed in the patient information leaflet enclosed with your medicine.

Signs of an allergic reaction include

  • Difficulty breathing or swallowing
  • Red, itchy, raised rash (hives)
  • Swelling of the lips, face, tongue and throat

Pregnancy and breastfeeding

Other safety information

Taking paracetamol tablets with cold and flu medicine (which may also contain paracetamol) can increase your risk of experiencing side effects or paracetamol toxicity, which can seriously damage your liver.

Do not take Paracetamol past the expiry date printed on the packaging.

Do not throw away expired or unwanted medicines via household or water waste. Take these medicines to your local pharmacy and ask them to dispose of them safely on your behalf.
