Herron - Australian paracetamol we want to see fly!!

I have been using this product for over 10 years - tablets and capsules. The small tablets are easy to swallow and the small bottle means they are less bulky to carry. They are very useful after a hard day in the garden when I experience muscle soreness and pain.
But I am finding these are now (in 2021) very hard to buy - either at supermarkets or chemists. WHY?
They are produced here, and are supporting Australian workers.
Herron is the ONLY product I have found on the market that is Australian PRODUCED and OWNED!! Show details

Small tablets: easy to swallow

I struggled with swallowing large bulky tablets when I was pregnant. These tablets are tiny compared to all the other brands (even smaller than capsules) and I could easily take them. I also love the fact that it’s an Australian brand and the little container is perfect to keep in a handbag or glovebox.  Show details

Changing my review as I thought I'm reviewing the Herron laxative one. This Paracetamol is ok, I like that it comes in a lil container and it is small tablets.

So Glad I Found This Product

Suffering headaches and neck and shoulder pain, I tried physio and a number of painkillers which didn't work. Most pain relief products make me very tired, very jittery or give me an upset stomach. A friend recommended Herron Gold Tabsules and it was a miracle. I stick strictly to the recommend dose and need them much less frequently. I don't understand how the paracetamol in Herron is different from other brands but it really works for me!

Herron pain relief products are pretty easy to find on the shelves and most places seem to stock them. I have never had a problem taking these in tablet form and find that as a pain relief medicine, it does the job pretty well. These tablets always seem to be a lot cheaper than other similar products as well which can be quite pricey. The tablets work pretty fast and I have only had good results from using them.
The tablets are pretty cheap, easy to locate in stores and seem to do the job pretty well and quite fast.
There are none.

I've always found that Herron Paracetamol works pretty well, especially for headaches. It is available pretty much everywhere, and it's very cheap. The box isn't too bulky, it's quite slim so it's easy to fit the whole packet into your pocket or handbag if you're going out somewhere and aren't sure if you will be needing it. The only downside is that it isn't as strong as some other pain relief medicines, and it doesn't work well for severe pain.
It's available everywhere, it is cheaper than a lot of other pain medications, and it works well, especially for headaches.
It isn't as strong as some over the counter pain medications.

I had a pounding headache and purchased this out of desperation at a service station. I was very pleased at how well it worked.
I felt 100% after using it.

great product to use if you have one of those everyday annoying headaches but not as good if you are in a lot more pain from a miagraine or toothache,pricing is reall y cheap for these paracetamols and they come in great bright packaging so you can always find them,tablets do dissolve easily and are of the normal size not the nasty big ones
is easily found in any supermarket,pricing is cheap compared to others available and best of all it is an australian brand
doesnt always seem to work the best well not for the really bad toothaches or miagraines

This is an Australian Product, which is great to see, so all Australians should buy it, also seeing as it works well and is cheap. It is easy enough to swallow, and doesn't make me feel sick at all, or give you any after taste. It works reasonably quickly, so next time you are buyitg a Paracetamol, look for herron, and support Australia!
It is reasonably priced (better than most other leading paracetamol brands), it is an Australian company, which is something i always look out for when i'm shopping, and it works effectivley.
None really that i can think of.

Herron Paracetamol is just as effective as any other brand of paracetamol with the added advantage of being an Australian company

A good product that I have not had any problems with. It works thats the main thing. The capsule/tablet size is easy enough to swallow and also comes in gel coated to help with this. A cheaper product than Panadol and is Australian branded and owned so a bonus.
Cheaper than panadol, is Australian product, and works the same as every other paracetamol.

This product should really be the best selling paracetamol in the country. Afterall, it is the one that is made right here in Australia! It's very well priced and readily available including the supermarket, chemist and Priceline stores. Easy to swallow and comes in tablets and caplets which I prefer. You can take them while pregnant too, as well as when feeding baby. I think you should take them with food which is not always easy, but this product does work and you should give it a go!
Made in Australia - keeping it local! Well priced compared to 'other' brands.
None to speak of.

This product works just as well as the more expensive brands. It has the same ingredient (being 500mg of paracetamol) so it must do the same job! It works well for headaches but not strong enough for muscular pains as advertised on the pack. I much prefer the tablets than the capsules as they are easier to swallow. I recommend this product for temporary relief only for headaches. If you have dental or muscular pain, I would use Ibuprofen as it is much stronger. But remember to always follow the directions and consult your doctor if the pain continues.
Cheap compared to other brands
