Brief Answer:
The total paracetmol dose is safer as per day limits

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

As per the dosage schedule prescribed by doctor you are still taking only 2000mg of paracetmol which is under the safe limits per day (up to 3000 mg is safe). Moreover night dose of paracetmol in wikoryl helps you get good sleep.
I still suggest to delay Cepodem and do Betadine mouth gargles four times a day. If it does not help you can start cepodem after 48 hours of first dose of Flexon/Wikoryl. With the above dose of 2000mg paracetmol your fever should come down.

Let me know if I can address any other issues.
