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.
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

Know better, choose better.
Since Oct. 2017 when I was diagnosed with severe OA in my wrists and after trying several other medications including steroids from my Doc., none of which suited me, I tried Panadol Osteo and at first they took the edge off the arthritic pain in my wrists. My Rheumatologist told me they are safe to take every 6-8 hours, I try to get away with taking only 4 tablets/day. Gradually the effectiveness lessened and I stopped taking them when the blister packaging became so difficult, and used Nurofen instead. The Nurofen are no more effective but ...they are too expensive. Recently I noticed on the package of POsteo 'modified release tablets' and wondered if they'd changed the packaging back. NO, worse if anything and regretting now that I purchased them, they are still difficult to release and they're also too BIG, I nearly gag on them. I may not even take them as they're totally useless.

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.
