What Tipol Junior is and what it is used for

This product contains paracetamol
Paracetamol belongs to the pharmacotherapeutic group of analgesics (pain-reducing agents) which
are acting simultaneously as antipyretics (fever-reducing agents) with weak anti-inflammatory effects.
Tipol Junior is used to reduce fever and for the relief of mild to moderate pain.


Do not take Tipol Junior

if you are allergic (hypersensitive) to paracetamol or any of the other ingredients of Tipol Junior
Take special care with Tipol Junior
if you suffer from severe kidney or liver disease. The hazards of overdose are greater in patients with non-cirrhotic alcoholic liver disease (liver if you have glucose-6-phosphatedehydrogenase deficiency if you have Gilbert’s syndrome (familial non-haemolytic jaundice). Prolonged or frequent use is discouraged. Do not take any other paracetamol-containing products. Do not exceed the stated dose. Immediate medical advice should be sought in the event of overdosage, because of the risk of irreversible liver damage. Irreversible liver damage can develop even in patients who feel perfectly well after an overdose. Prolonged use except under medical supervision may be harmful. In children treated with 60mg/kg daily of paracetamol, the combination with another antipyretic is not justified except in the case of ineffectiveness. Caution is advised in the administration of paracetamol to patients with severe renal insufficiency (kidney failure) (creatinine clearance ≤ 30mL/min (see section 4.2)) or hepatocellular insufficiency (liver failure) (mild to moderate). The hazards of overdose are greater in those with non-cirrhotic alcoholic liver disease (liver disease related to alcohol overuse). Caution should be exercised in cases of chronic alcoholism. The daily dose should not exceed 2 grams in such case. In the case of high fever, or signs of secondary infection or persistence of symptoms beyond 3 days, a re-evaluation of treatment should be made. Paracetamol should be used with caution in cases of dehydration and chronic malnutrition (e.g. anorexia or severe weight loss). The total dose of paracetamol should not exceed 3 g daily for adults and children weighing 50kg and more. If your symptoms worsen or do not improve after 3 days, or with high fever you must contact a doctor. Do not use paracetamol unless prescribed by your doctor if you have an addiction to alcohol or liver damage and do not use paracetamol together with alcohol. Paracetamol does not potentiate the effect of alcohol. If you are taking other pain medication containing paracetamol do not use Tipol Junior without first speaking to your doctor or a pharmacist. Never take more of Tipol Junior than recommended. A higher dose does not increase pain relief; instead it can cause serious liver damage. The symptoms of liver damage occur first after a few days. It is therefore very important that you contact your doctor as soon as possible if you have taken more Tipol Junior then recommended in this leaflet. In long-term, high-dose, incorrect use of painkillers, headaches may occur which may not be treated with higher doses of the medicine. In general, habitual intake of painkillers, particularly a combination of several analgesic substances, can lead to permanent kidney damage with the risk of kidney failure (analgesic nephropathy). Abrupt discontinuation following long-term, high-dose, incorrect use of painkillers may lead to headaches, fatigue, muscle pain, nervousness and autonomic symptoms (e.g. sweating, palpitations). These withdrawal symptoms resolve within a few days. Until this time, avoid further intake of painkillers and do not restart them without medical advice. You should not take Tipol Junior for long periods or at high doses without talking to your doctor or dentist.
Taking other medicines
Please tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking or have recently taken any other medicines,
including medicines obtained without a prescription.
Medicines that can affect the effects of Tipol Junior:
- probenecid (a medicine used to treat gout)
- possibly liver-damaging medicines e.g. phenobarbital (sleeping tablets) phenytoin, carbamazepine,
primidone (medicines used to treat epilepsy) and rifampicin (a medicine used to treat tuberculosis). Simultaneous use of these medicines and paracetamol can cause liver damage - metoclopramide and domperidone (medicines used to treat nausea). These can increase the absorption and onset of effect of paracetamol. - medicines that slow emptying of the stomach. These can delay the absorption and onset of effect - colestyramine (a medicine to reduce cholesterol). These can decrease the absorption and onset of effect of paracetamol. Therefore you should not take Colestyramine within an hour following paracetamol administration. - blood-thinning medicines (oral anticoagulants, particulary warfarin). Repeated paracetamol intake for longer than one week enhances the bleeding tendency. Therefore long-term administration of paracetamol should only take place under medical supervision. Occasional paracetamol intake has no significant effects on bleeding tendency
Simultaneous use of paracetamol and AZT (zidovudine, a medicine used to treat HIV infections)
increases the tendency to a reduction in the white blood cells (neutropenia). This can affect the
immune system and increase the risk for infections. Tipol Junior should therefore be used
simultaneously with zidovudine only on medical advice.
Effect of the intake of paracetamol on laboratory tests
Tests for uric acid and blood sugar can be affected.
Pregnancy and breast-feeding

Ask your doctor or pharmacist for advice before taking any medicine.
During pregnancy, paracetamol should not be taken for long periods, at high doses or in combination
with other medicinal products.
Therapeutic doses of paracetamol may be used during pregnancy or breast-feeding.
Driving and using machines

The use of Tipol Junior has no influence on the ability to drive or use machines.

Always take Tipol Junior exactly according to the directions in this package leaflet. You should check

The dose depends on the data in the following table. The dose of Tipol Junior is based upon age and body weight; the usual dose is 10–15 mg paracetamol per kg body weight as a single dose, up to a total daily dose of 60-75 mg/kg body weight. The respective dose interval depends on the symptoms and the maximum total daily dose. A dosing interval of at least 6 hours must be maintained, that means an administration of maximum 4 times per day. If symptoms persist longer than 3 days, a doctor should be contacted.
Method / Route of administration

Tipol Junior is for oral use only.

without water.
Special groups of patients
Impaired liver or kidney function
In patients with impaired liver or kidney function, the dose must be reduced or the dosing interval
prolonged. Ask your doctor or pharmacist for advice.
Chronic alcoholism
Chronic alcohol consumption may lower the paracetamol toxicity threshold. In these patients, the
length of time between two doses should be a minimum of 8 hours. Do not exceed 2 g paracetamol
per day.
Elderly patients
Dose adjustment is not required in the elderly.
If you take more Tipol Junior than you should
In the case of an overdose with Tipol Junior please inform your doctor or emergency room.
Overdosing has very serious consequences and can even lead to death.
An immediate treatment is essential, even if you feel well, because of the risk of delayed serious liver
damage. Symptoms may be limited to nausea or vomiting and may not reflect the severity of
overdose or the risk of organ damage.
If you forget to take Tipol Junior
Do not take a double dose to make up for a forgotten dose.
If you have any further questions on the use of this product, ask your doctor or pharmacist.
