I used this product for only 3 days.
it has caused me very severe constipation that I have never experienced before!
it might work very well with others but be aware that it might cause serious constipation.

Doesn’t help at all for hand arthritis
I have extreme pain in my thumbs and wrists from severe osteoarthritis. I have tried taking 6 Panadol Osteo in 24 hours a day and they don’t help at all.
Great for pain relief
Highly recommend for pain, not as strong as opioids, but pretty good. I take 2, 6 hourly. Better than celebrax and neurofen. These are much better than just the usual panadol.

Hard to Open - Panadol Osteo Blister Packs
I have been taking Panadol Osteo on a daily basis for the past few years and I will continue to take them, as I believe they work well.
The only objective I have is that it is extremely hard to get the pills out of the latest blister packs. I have "Arthritis" and nearly stab myself trying to get the pills out with a knife each day. The old packs were much easier to use. I could just pop them out.

Be very careful
I have been taking Panadol Osteo for over 10 years for chronic back pain. As I aged I knew I would get all the age old this and that pains and problems but it wasn't till I had two Total Knee Replacements surgery that I woke up to what this drug was doing to me. Every drug I had while going through the recovery of my surgeries I found I was rushing to the toilet with chronic diarrhea. So bad that I contemplating suicide. I weened myself of all the drugs that they gave me and I was still no better. So I stopped taking Panadol Osteo, almost immediately my bowel habits were back to normal. I just needed to go through the pain withdrawl slowly and have now got my life back to as normal as possible. Like I said be very careful.

has really helped, severe osteo arthritis in left foot and ankle.
take 6 tablets a day, depending on what chemist you go to, you can by them in a bottle and not in the blister pack, so much easier to use.

I have found that these tablets really help with the osteo in my lower back. It was so painful I could hardly move but these tablets have enabled me to move around more easily, without pain. I would recommend people with pain to try them but of course, speak to your doctor first.

Ok for mild pain, useless for anything
I was advised that these would help me with nerve pain, they haven't. This product works for very mild pain but does nothing for my nerve pain. Both panadol brand and generic brand work the same

I take only half a tablet first thing in the morning to help with my left knee anteior cruciate rupture, a injury from 27 years ago...! My whole left leg is becoming stressed all the way to my hip now...!
With the panadol Osteo I am able to walk smoother giving me a important advantage.... all day

Panadol oesteo best for neck osteoarthritis
Fantastic product and only thing that gives me pain relief when sleeping at night for neck osteoarthritis that I was diagnosed with 3 yrs ago. Almost normal with no pain during the day whereas used to be almost unbearable.
Been taking for two years now 2 in morning and 2 at night. If I don't take them pain starts to come back after 24 hours.
Highly recommend this product and only thing that has worked for me.
Hate having to take them but but best thing out there for neck oesto arthritis.
Recent research indicates Paracetamol is ineffective in treating arthritis pain
My pain level was 8-9 in my knees and hips. After taking 6 Panadol Osteo 24/7 for 1 decade, it did nothing to alleviate the arthritis pain. Clinical laboratory trials from over 3,000 patients confirmed that paracetamol was ineffective in treating pain for osteoarthritis of the hip and knee.
To make it worse, Doctors and Pharmacies are promoting Panadol Osteo (heavily advertised) as long lasting pain relief, it isn't. I am now off Panadol Osteo and my pain level is around 10-20, only by taking natural products such as, Glucosamine with Chondro...
I personally don't have a problem with taking Panadol Osteo .
I take them 6hrly with a glass of water followed by a warm drink to hurry it into my system for an arthritic knee ...
Why don't people take advice from a pharmacist re-dosage instead of "their friends"
Panadol Osteo won't get rid of a headache...it's slow release designed for the likes of arthritis. .
Professionals are trained to help us..well meaning friends aren't ..sorry !
Then wrong diagnoses gives the product a bad review..
Thanks fof reading
After using this product for many years for my arthritis , it is very disappointing that the packaging has been changed so that it is even more difficult to get the caplets out of the foil. For a product specifically to help people with arthritis ,it is laughable that they change the packaging so the people they are supposedly helping, find it near on impossible to use.
Panadol osteo works for me
Just started panadol osteo, amazing stuff as I was in alot of pain. Mid to lower back pain. Some neck pain too. But it eased right away after my first dose... The only problem was some stomach pain. And it made me drowsy. But that could have been my Gaul stone. Lol
Doesn't work with Degenerative Disc Disease
These pills are so ineffective, I have taken two every 2 hours over a 36 hour period with absolutely no relief at all. I have not had a single day without pain for over a year, and am currently stuck waiting to see a specialist before my doctor will even consider changing my meds.
Hate arthritis that what i got in my left knee it swollen
the nurse told my dr brow you can take 2 panadol ostero every 4 hour told my brother you only talk one every 6 hour i'm wayne, what is the right amount? thanks i got arthritis in my back and on my left knee i had open heart surgery
Same ol' paracetamol
Nothing special here, just a different dose of overpriced paracetamol, marketed as Panadol.
You get 265mg per tablet, instead of 500mg, but are urged to take these less frequently.
It is a case of "stronger doses less often" but at a premium price.
A waste of money, in my opinion.
I have used this product for many years now for my arthritis. Since the packaging has changed its to hard to get the tablet from the blister pack. I am now looking for a new product. Very disappointing.
This was Great.First day of taking these .!!I Was In a lot of Pain.
Have been recently diagnosed with mild to moderate Osteoarthritis in my knees.Xrays confirmed it.So some physio & some excercise & hopefully I"ll keep on moving.I only got my Panadol osteo tablets today .I thought how many tablets I have after the chemist handed them to me .Three huge boxes,plus Brufen 400mg also three boxes.So I got home today & had something to eat,& took two Panadol Osteo & a Brufen tablet.That was around 1.30pm today & my knee pain was 7/10 before.Now I have no pain.Fingers crossed this will help me to manage.
Took this stuff 1 hour and 40 mins ago and has done absolutely nothing to subside my period cramps. Still in tears and now just have to wait another 30 mins for the Nurofen Zavance I just took to kick in because I thought I wouldn’t need it.
Questions & Answers
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.
