What are Nurofen Migraine caplets?

Nurofen Migraine caplets help to ease pain caused by migraine, providing fast acting relief from pain. It can be used at the first sign of a migraine attack to help to ease your migraine pain so you can get on with your day.

 

What are migraines?

Migraines are a moderate to severe headache that feels like a throbbing pain in the side of your head. They often show other unpleasant symptoms as well as a headache and are sometimes accompanied by an aura, which happens before a migraine and warns you that a migraine is about to happen. Some of the most common symptoms of a migraine and a migraine aura include:

  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Sensitivity to light and sound
  • Sweating
  • Struggling to concentrate
  • Feeling very hot or very cold

How will this product ease my migraines?

Nurofen Migraine caplets contain 342mg of the active ingredient ibuprofen, which is a popular everyday painkiller.

Getting a headache or a migraine is one of the most uncomfortable feelings you can have, and potentially one of the most painful as well. There is a wide range of treatments out there that say that they help clear headaches and migraines but which ones are the most suitable?

Sometimes when you take painkillers you find that although they make your headache, backache, or whatever your aches and pains you’re trying to treat a bit better, they don’t quite do the job.

This is when you might consider picking up another painkiller to try to kick that pain to the curb. But how do you know if this is safe? Can you take more than one painkiller at once?

If you’ve ever looked into your medicine cabinet and asked yourself one of these questions then you’ve come to the right place.

Headaches and migraines are a real pain in the neck, or well, a pain in the head, but how do you know if you’re dealing with a migraine or a headache?

Both of them cause a lot of pain in your head, but what is the difference between the two?

If you’re not sure whether the head pain that’s making you feel extra grumpy every Monday morning is a headache or a migraine then you’re in luck, as we’re about to break down what makes the two so different.
