He added: “If you experience a fever either with or without chills that are not related to the condition you took the medicine for and were not there before you took paracetamol, it may be a side effect of this medication.”
“If you experience any of these side effects after taking paracetamol, you are advised to call 111 for advice. It is always recommended that you thoroughly read the patient information leaflet that will come with your medicine before you start to take it.
“Here, you will find a comprehensive list of known side effects, as well as information on how likely they are to affect you and what to do if you get them,” he said.
Also do not exceed your recommended dose. The NHS says: “Taking one or two extra tablets by accident is unlikely to be harmful, as long as you do not take more than eight tablets in 24 hours. Wait at least 24 hours before taking any more paracetamol.”
