Welcome to HealthcareMagic. Paracetamol, although a safe drug, is not to be consumed daily. This too might have its adverse effects like all other analgesics, affects the coagulation leading to bleeding disorders.And at higher doses may also affect liver function.So i would suggest you stop taking these pills and try to get treated the cause of pain. Take care.
