Detailed Answer:
Hi and thank you so much for this query.

Yes, you can take Panadol. Both work differently and do no potentiate the adverse effects of each other but synergistically to achieve better pain management. I will recommend that you take the medications regularly for sustained and good pain management.

Brief Answer:
Please, modify your working conditions!

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

This medication would address the pain but can not prevent it from recurring. You need to stop and get some rest, split the heavy bags into smaller sizes to avoid damaging your spine. I can guarantee you that if you continue this way, there is a very high risk of having a slipped spinal disc in the near future.

In all, prevention is better than cure. I understand the tough choices between work and health, I leave this decision to you.

I wish you all.
