SEPT 2020: coz I need to take something for OA pain I've been taking these now for over a year and they now give very little relief and the price goes up n up, so I'd change the 4 stars above to 2. nothing much helps :(

Putting yourselves out of business ?


So, the Australian government has changed it's legislation, I cannot get nurofen+ over the counter anymore & now requiring everyone to go to a doctor & get a prescription.
I have bought a box a week for years for chronic pain associated with MS, now though I can only get 1 box of 30 tablets every 15 days.
Further more, nurofen have upped the price. Was $13aud per box of 30, now it's $20.85.

So after getting 5 repeat prescriptions today, off to the pharmacy I go & after being given the information on the legislation changes, I told them to tear up the scripts & bin them!
Never buying nurofen again!

Not bad at all


I bought some nurofen capsules years ago from the local gold cross chemist and started using them when I had a sore throat due to the flu - it got so bad that I could hardly talk so I had to alternate so I could sleep however, the capsules were small so had no choice but, to take 2 capsules at a time in order for nurofen to work alright

nurofens great to use for the headaches or anything else you would normally use panadol for,they come in handy little boxes with neat packaging or you could opt for the larger quantity packets so you dont run out when you most need them,the tablets are not as big as others aithere so it makes them easier to swallow.they are a bit more dearer than other medicines available but they are worth it
great as its not that expensive,tells you on the packaging exactly whats in it and what it is designed to do
nothing bad to say about it
