Review of the availability of paracetamol sold as over-the-counter drugs in European pharmacies; a descriptive cross sectional study

Abstract:
Paracetamol is a very frequently used drug for overdose and enquiries to poison information centres (PIC) concerning paracetamol-related poisonings are common. Availability of paracetamol varies in European countries; some have no pack size restriction in pharmacies, while others do. The aim of the study was to describe availability of paracetamol sold over-the counter (OTC) in European pharmacies, secondly to investigate the association between availability and the frequencies of enquiries to PICs concerning poisoning with paracetamol.
