Misuse Of Paracetamol Damages Liver And Kidney- PSN

Pharmaceutical Society of Nigeria (PSN) has warned against indiscriminate or misuse of
Paracetamol, saying such practice damages the liver and kidney.

Mr Jelili Kilani, PSN Chairman, FCT Chapter, who disclosed this in an interview with newsmen in
Abuja on Tuesday emphasised that Paracetamol,
an analgesic, was not suppose to be misused.

Kilani defined drug misuse as the use of drug for
purposes for which it was not intended or using a
drug in excessive quantities.

He further described drug abuse as an ill-wind which its effect might not manifest immediately
but later in life.

The chairman, however, decried the usual practice
of taking about three or more tablet of Paracetamol at once to fast track healing processes.

“By engaging in such practice, you are damaging your internal organs like the liver and kidney, which
if care is not taken, such damages cannot be remedy.’’

Kilani, therefore, urged the general public to desist from misuse of Paracetamol in order to avert
inflicting injury to their system.
