What is Paramol?

Paramol are pain relief tablets that help to ease moderate pains that cannot be relieved with painkillers such as paracetamol or ibuprofen alone. Ideal for those who need to ease moderate pains fast and are searching for effective pain relief.


What kinds of pain can this product help me to manage?

Paramol can be used to ease many different kinds of pains, with some of the most popular reasons to use this product including:

How will these tablets help to ease my pain?

Paramol tablets contain the active ingredients paracetamol and dihydrocodeine, which work together to ease pains that can’t be relieved using other painkillers, such as paracetamol, ibuprofen, and aspirin alone.

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.

You might have heard of codeine, maybe you’ve been prescribed it for pain or as a cough medicine, but what is it really?

Today we’re going to take a good look at codeine and answer all of the questions you’ve been asking about this medication and what it can do.
