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.
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.
- Mild side effects
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
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.
