Are you concerned about health warnings for paracetamol?

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.
