Paracetamol at a good price
This is the only way that I buy paracetamol for my family. It is great value for money and often on sale at Chemist Warehouse. I have always paid less than $2.50 for 100 tablets.

paracetamol is paracetamol !
Paracetamol is paracetamol and whether you call it Panadol or Panamax both are exactly the same thing. The only difference is that Panadol has a gelatine coating to make it more pleasant to take and Panamax doesn't have the coating. The gelatine coating has no impact on the effectiveness of the paracetamol. So the ONLY difference between the two is the gel coating which is probably responsible for Panadol's the higher price.
Panamax is used by a number of people that I know(including a nurse) in preference to "Panadol" to save money and all get...

Cheap and great
Read the ingredients peoples and stop buying brand names. Panamax is the same as the big brands, just as effective and easily a quarter of the price. No brainer really
Purchased in July 2019 at Coles for $2.99.
Had open heart surgery and took two Panamax every six hours and it worked like a dream. No pains at all since surgery. Panamax and Panadol have the same ingredients, Paracetamol, the only difference is the coating and packaging.

It's all the same but....
An apple is an apple or pear is a pear Panamax is paracetamol and they're all the same no difference whatsoever but Panamax does not have a coating and is very difficult to swallow often just getting caught in the throat very uncomfortable. It's like swallowing a piece of chalk lol. It's a pity that product couldn't be coated with something to make it easier to swallow I would pay more for that option. But one swallowed it does exactly as you would expect it's paracetamol the functionality of this product is exactly the same as any other products containing paracetamol

Didn't work for me
I get quite severe migraine often and after running out of panadol and nurofen I turned to Panamax to relieve some pain, enough so I could sleep but literally nothing changed. It did not work at ALL even after waiting for an hour for it to "kick in" literally did not relieve any pain. So disappointed.
I used to buy these panamax pain relief tablets on the pharmaceutical benefits scheme as the doctor recommended them and found them to work well though they would sometimes hurt the stomache a little bit though not too bad and they didn't fall apart easily like the cheaper ones they usually sell in the supermarkets though got to make sure have water with them plus they are good priced
Has the job done
This is one of the staples in my emergency kit. A generic brand of Panadol, at a fraction of price. The same ingredient and dose as the real Panadol. Yes, it is.
I was first introduced to this "brand" by my GP after I broke my elbow, some years ago, and I had to have lots of tablets a day to calm the pain.
It has always worked for me.
The only downside is that the tablets are not properly coated and are a bit big, so I find them more difficult to swallow than the usual Panadol.
Mind, this is not an antiflammatory, so it won't work if your pain has an inflammatory cause.
I went to the pharmacy and asked for my usual 100 pack panadol which cost more than $14 here in my chemist in perth Australia. Discount chemists probably $8. Anyway the chemist convinced me to buy Panamax when she heard me gasp at $14 by saying the Panamax 100 tablet is 99 cents!!! Lol anyways I got two packs and so far they have worked for me. I get a lot of headaches and arthritis pain. Though for severe pain I usually take panadeine forte.
The frighten price of course!!!!! Cost me $1 for a 100 pack!!!!
Nothing wrong with it
I was introduced to this when I had a bad soft tissue injury. I used it to relieve headaches & muscle pain at the time. I've since learnt that it treats a huge range of other pain - such as period pain, fever etc.
This is a great cost-effective product. It is so much cheaper than Panadol & works just as well, if not better!! I buy the 100 pack & will never go back to Neurofen or Panadol. Yet again, the famous brand is beaten by a cheaper, equally effective product!
I cannot think of any negative things about this product - it is great!!
Questions & Answers
Is the manufacturers of Panamax trying to take down the manufacturers of Panadol?
I'm not sure what you mean by take down. Its a fact of life that day to day items like pain killers or even the family car will be made in a cheaper more basic version and a more expensive more luxurious version. Panamax doesnt have the gel coating of Panadol that makes it a bit nicer to take so its the cheaper version of paracetamol and Panadol with its gel coating is the more luxurious nicer to take version. There would be a market for both types so I cant see that either is trying to take the other down.
Confused over how to take cholestyramine, particularly the time interval between taking it and medication.

Points of praise:

- Reviewers said that Panamax works either rapidly or straight away.
