Proposed changes to paracetamol warning and advisory statements

Medsafe is seeking comments on proposed changes to current warning and advisory statements for paracetamol. At the December 2018 Medicines Adverse Reactions Committee (MARC) meeting, the Committee discussed a serious case report of acute liver failure in a young patient due to a suspected overdose of paracetamol. The Committee noted that they had discussed similar case reports in the past, indicating an ongoing issue (December 2018 Medicines Adverse Reactions Committee Meeting Minutes). 

We are seeking your views on the proposed paracetamol conditions, warning statements and dosing table in their consultation document.

Please complete the attached survey questions document and send to by 24th January 2020
