Hi Dear
Welcome to the Health Care Magic
Paracetamol is considered to be safest. Specially in the season of Dengue epedmic better go for only paracetamol.
But Meftal P is also quite safe medicine. Need not to worry much. You can consult pead next morning and can continue with the same.
Hope for the Best,
