Details

Although the majority of statutory label warnings for medicines have been removed, the Human Medicines Regulations 2012 [SI 2012/1916] keep statutory warnings for all medicines which contain paracetamol. The warnings have been formally user tested and are more patient-accessible than previous statements.

This guidance replicates the statements that should be used for products containing paracetamol.
