When could painkillers be dangerous?

Mild painkillers or analgesics such as Panadol are safe when used correctly. Like any other drug if they are overused or taken in large doses then they can cause problems to your kidneys and your liver. If you need to use Panadol for longer than 48 hours then you should consult your doctor. The occasional use of Panadol for a headache or a fever is safe as long as you do not have a liver or kidney condition.
