Section 4.4 - the following warning has been added:

Serious skin reactions such as acute generalized exanthematous pustulosis (AGEP), Stevens - Johnson syndrome (SJS), and toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN), have been reported very rarely in patients receiving paracetamol. Patients should be informed about the signs of serious skin reactions, and use of the drug should be discontinued at the first appearance of skin rash or any other sign of hypersensitivity.

Section 4.6 has been updated as follows:

There are no adequate and well-controlled clinical studies in pregnant or breastfeeding women. Epidemiological studies indicate that paracetamol, when taken as directed, does not adversely affect the pregnant mother or fetus.

 

Pregnancy

When given to the mother in labeled doses, paracetamol crosses the placenta into fetal circulation as early as 30 minutes after ingestion and is effectively metabolized by fetal sulfate conjugation. When taken as directed, paracetamol

does not adversely affect the pregnant mother or fetus

 

Breastfeeding

Paracetamol is excreted in breast milk in low concentrations (0.1% to 1.85% of the ingested maternal dose). Maternal ingestion of paracetamol in labeled doses does not present a risk to the nursing infant.



Section 4.8 & 4.9 have been updated with new information - please see revised SPC for details. Section 4.8 has also been updated with Adverse events reporting information

Section 5.1 - the following paragraph has been added

ATC Code: N02BE01 – Other analgesics and antipyretics

Paracetamol is a centrally acting, non-opiate, non-salicylate analgesic. Paracetamol is a clinically proven analgesic/antipyretic, and it is thought to produce analgesia by elevation of the pain threshold and antipyresis through action on the hypothalamic heat-regulating centre.  Single-dose studies (12.5 mg/kg) of paracetamol in febrile children showed an onset of fever reduction within 15 to 30 minutes.
