36 comments

Use of New Zealand's most widely taken painkiller, paracetamol, is being reviewed because of concerns in the United States about side-effects that include liver damage.

Three advisory committees have advised the US Food and Drug Administration to reduce the single maximum dose of the common painkiller - known in the US as acetaminophen - from 1000mg to 650mg.

They also recommended reducing the maximum daily dose, but did not specify by how much.
