Yes: Norflex is a brand of orphenadrine, which is a muscle relaxant. Panado is a brand of paracetamol sold in South Africa (so i presume you live there) which is known as Acetaminophen here in the states. Interactions checker at www.Drug.Com showed no problems taking the two together. If you resided in the states, i would suggest confirming w/your pharmacist. Always tell your family doc what u r taking.
