Hi,
Welcome to healthcaremagic.
Your father in law is on multiple medicines.
It is wise to be very concerned about taking the additional medicines, it is also good on your part that you are very very discreet about consulting on the simplest things.
He can continue his current medicines and there is no harm in taking 500 milligram paracetamol for pain control.
This is a well tolerated drug and has got very good safety profile even in elderly.
I hope the advice will be helpful for you.
I find this answer helpful
