Hello,

Welcome to Justanswer website.

Myself Dr Josh and I’m happy to help with your question today.

Yes, you can safely take Ella tablet after Paracetamol. There is no negative interaction between Ella and Paracetamol.

Ella contains ulipristal and is a emergency contraceptive. It works by stopping or delaying the release of an egg from an ovary.

Yes, you can safely take Ella after two pills of Paracetamol.

You would develop any side effect from this drug interaction.

Hope this helped

what sort of side effect would I get? I will take the ella one after 4 hours of taking the paracetamols. I would also like to ask if its ok to have alcohol in the evening maybe after 2 - 3 hours of taking the ella one tablet, would that be safe?

Hello

The negative interaction here is paracetamol and alcohol

This combination should be avoided.

It is toxic, and over time can be a real problem.

Ella does not interact with alcohol.

Hot flushing is the most common side effect of ella, up to 10% of patients, and this is considered common. In fact, it can be up to 24%.

There are a number of quite common side effects.

hi..I totally agree. I took the paracetamol this morning so I wouldn't drink alcohol until it was evening, or never have it that day!
thanks for the advice.
