I have been on Panadol osteo capsule 3 times
a day for 14months for painful bunyons and hammer toes both feet.
Had a double bunyon and hammer toes operation in January. This was effective in controlling the pain and I was walking well.
I was concerned about side effects so I have this up abruptly 3 days ago and have not been able to sleep properly since. Is the a side effect?
Have tried osteomol of and on but it seems my pain is worse when I take it anyone else experience this ?
Yes, and I can’t get a answer. I’ve been off it for 6 days now, without trying, and I’ve not had the pain as I’ve had before, in fact, I’ve been heaps better and only using 3 x 150 tramadol. I am unusually drowsy and a nap puts me together again. In the past I’ve been known to say that I swear I have more pain when I take the panadol.
Is this more effective for migraine compared with simple panamax?
No. This is used for Osteo, bone pain.
But my GP recommended for migraine
Its just a bigger dose of paracetamol, nothing magical. Instead of 500mg, Panadol Osteo has 625mg - it contains no other drug/medicine. I've never had success treating migraine with paracetamol, the only thing that works for me is codeine in a dark room with a cold face cloth over my eyes. Good luck with whatever you try.
i take 4 Panadol osteo per day can I take a further Panadol optizorb for a headache
Yes you can provided you do not take it at the same time period that you take panadol oesteo e.g. after 6 hours from taking panadol oesteo. You may take 2 neurofen at the same time as panadol oesteo to see if it gets rid of your headache.
I will be in France for 4 months. I take Panadol Oesteo twice a day. I have been told this product is not available in France. Could it be sold under another name?
Can I take some headache tablets if I’ve had two Panadol osteosarcoma as well
I've been told no, but do check with your doctor.
How long does Panadol Osteo last in your system? or how long does it take till it wears off?
Where are Panadol Osteo made, no information on the packet or on the explanatory leaflet
You are right, not really sure. Panadol Osteo is owned by GlaxoSmithKline a British multinational pharmaceutical company and tablets are sold in more than 85 countries. It only says on packet Australia & Auckland New Zealand, but I doubt it is manufactured in either of these countries. GlaxoSmithKline has R&D centres in the UK, USA, Spain, Belgium and China, so my guess it could be any one of these countries.
Yes you are also correct, and it is not Aus or NZ, I suspect China which is why they do not indicate the country of manufacture...
Since it closed down in France 2008, it is probably made in China or India. As most medications are these days.
Has anyone bought Panadol Osteo caplets with the old packaging (i.e. the easier one). If yes, would they email the use by date on the box please.
I’ve been having bad headaches since I’ve been taking Panadol osteo. Is this one of the side effects or is it just a coincidence?
Panadol Osteo has a slightly higher dose of paracetamol than the normal Panadol tablets (665mg versus 500mg per tablet), but it releases some of this active ingredient over a longer time period. If you got relief using regular paracetamol, maybe this slow release is not giving you sufficient dosage when you first take them. You could try taking one of each type to see if the slightly higher dose of regular acting Panadol has the desired effect. Or you could try using one of the "fast acting" types now available. I'd ask your pharmacist what's best for your needs.
Can you safely take normal Panadol after the 6-8 hour scope of having Panadol osteo?
Can i take panadol osteo for stomach aches?
Hi Rex, I take this specifically for osteoarthritis as the name suggests, and I'd urge you see a doctor if you have a stomach ache, it is best to have it explored. I wish you well.
I am wondering if the makers of paradol osteo are planning to change the packaging back to the way it was?
I find it very hard to remove the medication from the pack with the paper covering added and have resorted to using a knife to cut them out - very unsafe, I know. Did the manufacturers stop to think that people with arthritis in their hands would need to access their product?!
Katie, like you I wondered the same thing and actually emailed GSK telling them the problem. I was heartened when they answered that they are considering changing the packaging to make it easier for people like us to access the tablets. So I'm waiting . . . .
does panadol osteopath help inflammation in arthritus?
Hi Rose, my experience with these tablets is that they help the pain a little, that could mean the inflammation lessens some, but I'm never without pain. I think they are (for me) the best of a bad lot. best wishes
I have taken Oesteo panadol for around 1 year and no pain at all. Just completed the Camino and no pain
Giving me cramping in my stomachs.Have stop taking them 12hrs ago.A lot of belly pain and wind pain.Is this normal?
I have not had any pain in my stomach at all. Maybe you need to take more water when taking a tablet. Check with pharmacist.
What you are experiencing doesn't sound right, it is a couple of days now since you have stopped taking the tablets, are you feeling any better? if so I'd be cautious about taking them again and have a word with my Dr or pharmacist too. I haven't experienced this. good luck.
Thank you.I have stopped taking Panadol osteo for now and symptoms have gone away.Pharmasist told me to reintroduce slowly.If it happens again to see doctor.
I understand that there are no specific benefits of each type of Panadol eg Panadol Osteo for Osteo conditions. It’s the paracetamol that matters. My specialist told me just to keep on taking them,2 every 8 hours. Am starting to wonder about taking it forever. Even the directions on the notes in the box say only for a short term. What do you think?
Hi I've been told by my doctor there's no problem using Panadol Osteo over long periods. I have to say Panadol did nothing for my pain in my knee, but Panadol Osteo has totally cured me of any pain, so there must be a difference. As usual though, See Your doctor. In fact, if I were you I'd seek a second opinion to set your mind at rest. Good Luck!
Can I use panadol osteo for three months?
I would suggest you talk to your doctor....The internet is not the right place to get safe medical advice.....Taking any medication...even over the counter meds...depends on your health issues...and whatever other medications or over the counter drugs you are taking....All the best...
I agree with Maev /tal to your doctor, however I would add mine told me its ok.
