I think I may be allergic to paracetamol? I had a panadol overseas and I had flu like symptoms, I had problems breathing, itchy throat and coughing a fair bit, I didn't think it was the panadol but rather allergic to the food I've eaten earlier.
Another time, I had a headache and took the panadol from the same box previously, I had the exact same symptoms! That's when I realised it's the panadol! I thought it was just bad ingredients because these panadols were bought overseas. I don't remember ever being allergic to it as a kid.
I was then confirmed that I was allergic to it when I came back to Australia, I had a headache so a friend gave me a Panamax which is a weaker version of Panadol. Exactly the same symptoms again! I couldn't sleep that night and the symptoms were horrible, I just felt so sick like flu symptoms. I was wondering that most flu/cold medications contain paracetomol, should I not take these as well? My doctor wasn't very helpful in letting me know why I'm allergic to panadol either.
