Dosage:

  • For analgesia or antipyrexia in adults or children older than 11 years, the usual oral of paracetamol is 325 – 650 mg every 4 – 6 hours as necessary, but should not exceed 4 g daily; higher single doses (e.g. 1 g) may be useful for analgesia in some patients.
  • Paracetamol should not be used for self-medication of pain for longer than 10 days in adults or 5 days in children.
  • Paracetamol should not be used for self-medication of marker fever (greater than 39.5OC), fever persisting longer 3 days, or recurrent fever.
