    What I discovered the other day, on talking to my DR,  I said I have quite a few packets of Panadol Osteo  from when I was having hip problems What  will I do with them throw them out? Now I must be a slow learner because he said keep them they are just plain old Panadol take them as usual for pain etc, tacking the word Osteo on the end is just a marketing ploy.

    I have never thought about that, as I said   A slow learner sometimes!!

    bettyh the amount of Paracetamol in 1 x PanadolOsteo tablet is an extra 165mg per tablet so it is stronger than the 500mg per Panadol tablet, giving one an extra boost of painkiller.

    I was prescribed LYRICA for Fibromyalgia and Peripheral Neuropathy some years ago and although I can have extra at midday, I often take 1 or 2 PanadolOsteo tablets as I get a quicker response.

    To Each Their Own – as we know everyone’s pain levels and response to pain relief are not the same 🙂

    I too take p.osteo but sometimes I wonder why. I know they are slightly stronger than regular Panadol too but sometimes I wonder about the price difference. Regular Panadol can sometimes be picked up for under $2 but p.o. Can be $9. I smell a rat!

    another thing about panadol osteo and its generic equivalents is that it is slow release, so that the paracetamol (the active ingredient) is gradually released throughout the day.If you have a headache, you would be better off taking a regular paracetamol tablet or capsule, preferably with some food as it takes effect in about 15 minutes but lasts only up to 4 hours.

    I use the generic brand of panadol osteo for arthritis and find it is better than not taking it.
