Abstract

Purpose: To determine the safety of oral coated paracetamol tablets 500 mg and oral suspension 120 mg/5 mL produced by Hasco-Lek Poland.
Methods: We analyzed sales volume and data obtained from the monitoring of spontaneous reports on the adverse effects of paracetamol collected in the period between November 2000 and June 2012.
Results: A total of 45,694 units of coated paracetamol tablets (500 mg) and 6,048,289 units of paracetamol oral suspension (120 mg/5 mL) were marketed during that period. There were 4 spontaneous reports of adverse effects.
Conclusion: Oral paracetamol is a safe medication rarely causing adverse effects but it is possible that the existing spontaneous monitoring system for adverse effects in Poland is not sensitive enough to detect all adverse effects, and needs improvement.
