Suffering from a headache or a mild fever? Did you just self-medicate yourself and pop a paracetamol available over the counter? Think again, for some over the counter drugs may actually be dangerous for you if consumed in the wrong quantities or with add-ons such as alcohol.
"Paracetamol is the most widely used pain killer and anti-fever drug in the country. It is an integral component of hundreds of over the counter and prescription medications available in the market. Though remarkably safe when taken in medically prescribed dose, an overdose of paracetamol can cause fatal and non-fatal liver damage", points President of the Heart Care Foundation of India, Dr. KK Aggarwal who is also the senior national vice president of the Indian Medical Association
