Taking other medicines with Paracetamol 500 mg/1000 mg film-coated tablets

Some other medicines may influence or affect the way Paracetamol 500 mg film-coated tablets work. Some of these drugs are listed below:

“Flucloxacillin (antibiotic) due to the serious risk of blood and fluid abnormalities (high anion gap metabolic acidosis) which require urgent treatment and which may occur particularly in cases of severe renal failure, sepsis (when bacteria and their toxins circulate in the blood leading to organ damage), malnutrition, chronic alcoholism and the use of maximum daily doses of paracetamol.”
