The product should not be taken with known hypersensitivity to paracetamol or any of the other ingredients. In addition, paracetamol should not be used in severe liver disease including acute jaundice, severe hemolytic anemia (renal red blood cell anemia) and rectal bleeding, inflammation of the large intestine (proctocolitis) or after surgery. Panadol Junior should not be administered at the same time as other medicines that damage liver function.

Like all medicines, Panadol Junior can have side effects that may not be present in everyone.
Panadol Junior Suppositories are usually well tolerated while observing the recommended dosage, but skin rash, rarely bronchial constriction, hepatic impairment, and haematopoiesis may occur. If any of these or other unusual reactions occur, stop taking the product to the child and consult a doctor.
If the child uses other medicines (on a prescription or without it), consider the appropriateness of taking this medicine with your doctor at the same time. If you are giving this product to your child, tell your doctor if you are prescribing other medicines. Contemporary long-term use of some medicines for sleeping, against epilepsy, some antibiotics may lead to liver damage. Metoclopramide or domperidone may increase the rate of absorption of paracetamol, cholestyramine may decrease it. With regular long-term use of paracetamol, the effect of blood-thinning medicines (warfarin or other coumarin preparations) may be increased, with an increased risk of bleeding. Occasional use has no significant effect. Contemporary long-term use of Panadol Junior Suppositories and acetylsalicylic acid or other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agents may lead to kidney damage.
