Some people can have Steven Johnson syndrome, which is a type of skin reaction that can occur in the aftermath of Febrol consumption. If you have experienced this before, talk to your health care provider for an alternative.

Alcohol and Febrol both affect the liver. When taken in conjunction, these have a compound effect on the liver. Thus, if you drink more than 3 glasses of alcohol a day, you should take Febrol with caution to prevent liver damage.
