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?

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...

SuzanneR

Since it closed down in France 2008, it is probably made in China or India. As most medications are these days.

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.

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.

Katie

Katieasked

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?!

1 answer

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 . . . .

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

Hi Gwen
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.

Hello Gwen
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.

Patsy

Patsyasked

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!

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...
