Panadol (paracetamol) is commonly used in Australia for headaches, pain, and fever. It is a medicine sold by pharmacists without prescription. Drugs.com states that no interactions between Duromine and Panadol have been found. However, this does not necessarily mean that there are no drug interactions at all. Make sure you always consult your doctor before using two or more medications at the same time.

Can I take Panadol and Duromine?

Duromine is an amphetamine-like prescription drug used for appetite suppression.

Just as other prescription weight loss drugs, Duromine is indicated for obese people who have failed to lose weight through diet and exercise and not those who want to lose just a few pounds.

The need to use Duromine and Paracetamol together arises when a person faces the side effects of a weight loss drug.

Usually, these are:

  • symptomatic headaches; 
  • insufficient sweating;
  • fever or hot flash.

Normally, these effects last for a short time and disappear within a few days or a couple of weeks from the start of this weight-loss drug use. If they are more severe or persist, talk to your doctor or a pharmacist.

For example, this topic was raised during a discussion, in which a patient had similar issues and addressed to a pharmacist. The latter has confirmed the absence of contraindications and that there was nothing bad in the combination of Duromine and paracetamol.

Either way, be sure to notify your doctor if you:

  • have diabetes;
  • use appetite suppressants;
  • use amphetamine-derived stimulants (phentermine).
