The study was planned to assess the Effective usage of combination of Aceclofenac and Paracetamol in over the counter medication and consumer knowledge. Method: The purpose of this study was to evaluate public knowledge about OTC acetaminophen containing products. This study will involve administration of a cross-sectional interview to a calculated sample of participants (100) at pharmacies. A questionnaire was developed based on literature, which includes items to evaluate patient knowledge and use of acetaminophen, education received about acetaminophen, consumption. A standardized questionnaire was utilized to collect all data. Answers were recorded in multiple formats according to patient responses. The majority of the participants in this study were between the ages of 20 and 29, 51% were graduates, 44 patients took the tablets for pain relief, 91 patients took the drug in tablet form, 71 percent and 83 percent of the people took two doses per day and took the maximum daily doses, respectively. In this study, 42 persons were unaware of minor side effects, 81 percent were aware that self-prescribing is dangerous, and 62 percent were aware of contraindications, particularly ulcers.
