Disorders of the liver.

Biological signs of hepatotoxicity, comprising an increase of transaminases were observed after treatment with high doses. This is reinforced by alcohol hepatotoxicity and microsomal leverinductoren (see 'Interactions').
If such reactions occur, treatment should be discontinued.

Effects on ability to drive and use machines:

Acetaminophen has no effect on the ability to drive and use machines.


In the adult, a single dose of 8 to 10 g cause hepatic necrosis. In children, the toxic dose is 120 mg / kg. The toxic dose is lower in patients with hepatic insufficiency and chronic alcoholism.
The symptoms (pallor, nausea, vomiting) usually manifest themselves within the first 12 to 24 hours, hepatic manifests only occur 3 days after the overdose . Hospitalization is required, even in cases of suspected intoxication. Poison Control Center can be contacted on the number 070/245.245.

When a patient by the oral route has taken a paracetamol overdose, the stomach should be emptied as soon as possible by means of a gastric lavage or induce vomiting. An overdose via rectal route is unlikely.
One can start treatment with administration of activated charcoal, but the most important therapeutic measure is still the intravenous administration of N-acetylcysteine, at a rate of 150 mg / kg in 30 à 60 minutes, then 50 mg / kg in 4 hours and then 100 mg / kg in 16 hours. The volume of 5% glucose solution used as infusion fluid should be determined by the age and weight of the patient.
In case of very serious overdose, administration of N-acetylcysteine continue until the 48 e hours.

Interaction with other medicinal products and other forms of interaction:

The administration of activated charcoal reduces the absorption of paracetamol in cases of overdose.
Leverenzyminductoren (such as barbiturates, diphantoïne) and alcohol may enhance the hepatotoxicity of paracetamol.
The half-life of chloramphenicol may be extended from 2 to 3 hours to 18 to 24 hours in case of simultaneous intake of paracetamol.
Acetaminophen may interfere with the effect of warfarin.
The weak binding of paracetamol to plasma proteins may be used concomitantly with anticoagulants. However, intake of paracetamol for several days may increase the risk of bleeding. In that case, a regular monitoring of the International Normalized Ratio (INR) is recommended.
Given the risk of a decline in the number of leukocytes (leukopenia) with concomitant intake of paracetamol and AZT (zidovudine), should concomitant use only under medical supervision available.
The absorption of paracetamol may increase when used concomitantly with metoclopramide and drop when it is used concurrently with cholestyramine.
Concomitant intake of diflunisal increases the serum concentration of paracetamol. Elevated serum concentrations are associated with hepatotoxicity.
