Why Panadol Osteo?

Osteoarthritis tends to be a persistent condition - something that, if not managed properly, may impact your day-to-day life significantly. Alongside holistic treatment plans, Paracetamol is a trusted medication that can be used in a wide range of people, including infants and breastfeeding mothers.
Chances are, you have used Paracetamol to relieve headache or the symptoms of colds and flu. Using Paracetamol to relieve the pain and stiffness of Osteoarthritis is slightly different.
Panadol Osteo contains a higher dose of Paracetamol than regular Paracetamol tablets and, with just 3 times a day dosage, may provide up to 24-hour relief from pain.

Panadol Osteo brings you a unique bi-layer tablet that is gentle on the stomach. One layer delivers fast release, while the other provides long lasting pain relief for up to 8 hours*. So you can have the freedom to do more.

The Paracetamol is released in 2 stages
1. 31% of the Paracetamol in Panadol Osteo is released immediately, for rapid onset of action.
2. 69% of the Paracetamol in Panadol Osteo is released slowly, to provide prolonged pain relief, for up to 8 hours.
