It is well tolerated and has no aspirin-related adverse effects.

Patients who have previously used barbiturates, tricyclic antidepressants, or alcohol may have a reduced capacity to metabolize high dosages of Paracetamol. The hepatotoxicity of paracetamol overdosage can be exacerbated by alcohol. Chronic use of anticonvulsants or oral steroid contraceptives stimulates liver enzymes, which may prevent therapeutic Paracetamol levels from being reached by increasing first-pass metabolism or clearance.
