i take 4 Panadol osteo per day can I take a further Panadol optizorb for a headache
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...
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.
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?!
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
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.
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...
Are you able to take panadol osteo with apixoban
What are the side effects of panadolosteo?
Ive had only one side effect and thats a bit of constipation. Most pain killers will do this. I think its worth tsking the Panodol Osteo as my my knee had been painful for years and I got complete relief. Taking a laxative is a small price to pay for pain relief I think. thanks
None for me...everyone is different.....you should discuss any medication you take with your GP or Specialist...
