Pain relief for headaches or migraines

Pain relief for headaches

 

Headaches can be brought on for a variety of reasons and it’s not always easy to isolate the cause. Because Maxigesic combines paracetamol and ibuprofen it tackles headaches fast and effectively, whether it's muscle tension in the head, neck and shoulders or due to factors like anxiety, lack of sleep or alcohol.

Pain relief for migraines

 

Migraines are caused by the enlargement of blood vessels in the head and can be severely debilitating episodes with symptoms that affect the sufferer for a couple of days. In this situation Maxigesic’s unique combination of paracetamol and ibuprofen provides better, faster relief than either paracetamol or ibuprofen alone.1

Pain relief for toothache or after dental procedures

Pain relief for toothache

 

Toothache requires fast and effective pain relief, which is where Maxigesic is ideal. It’s available over the counter at your local pharmacy, and its double-action combination of paracetamol and ibuprofen works together to reduce pain and inflammation at the same time for better, faster relief than paracetamol or ibuprofen alone.1

Pain relief after dental procedures

 

Clinical trials of Maxigesic after dental surgery have proven the effectiveness of Maxigesic’s unique double action formulation in relieving pain. By combining paracetamol and ibuprofen in a unique formulation of paracetamol (500mg) and ibuprofen (150mg) Maxigesic consistently delivered better pain relief than paracetamol or ibuprofen alone during the recovery period from wisdom tooth extraction.1

Here is a chart that illustrates the effectiveness of Maxigesic compared to paracetamol and ibuprofen alone at maximum daily dosage, with Maxigesic reducing pain by 32.2% more than paracetamol and 35.8% more than ibuprofen.1

Relief for muscular pain and backache

Pain relief for muscular pain

 

Muscular pain, whether it’s caused by physical exertion in sports or by sitting at a computer all day, is the result of strained or damaged tissue. In these situations, it will take time for the body to heal itself and in the meantime, there may be a degree of discomfort to deal with. Maxigesic’s double-action formulation of paracetamol and ibuprofen is a winning combination that helps ease your discomfort and aid recovery by relieving pain and reducing inflammation at the same time.

Pain relief for backache

 

Maxigesic's double-action formulation of paracetamol and ibuprofen can help ease the pain and reduce the inflammation you may experience due to backache. You can take Maxigesic for short term backache relief (e.g. to help aid recovery after an injury or to relieve a tight sore back after exercise), but if you have chronic, on-going back pain you should see your doctor to diagnose the cause and provide appropriate treatment options.

Relief for osteoarthritis or rheumatic pain

Relief for osteoarthritis or rheumatic pain

 

There are no known cures for any of the forms of arthritis, but the pain that’s caused can be managed by a combination of medication, exercise and a healthy diet.

Because arthritis sufferers can feel a range of symptoms, including stiffness and pain, it’s important that the pain relief that’s chosen is able to reduce pain and inflammation. This is where Maxigesic’s unique combination of paracetamol and ibuprofen is particularly suited. The paracetamol acts mainly in the brain, while Ibuprofen targets the production of pain chemicals throughout the body and reduces inflammation. With this double-action combination Maxigesic delivers better pain relief than either paracetamol or ibuprofen alone.1

You should be aware that Maxigesic is only intended for short-term pain relief, so try using it on those days when your joint pain flares up much worse than usual. For everyday use you can try Zo-Rub OA topical cream to help provide longer-term relief of your osteoarthritis pain.

Relief for period pain

Pain relief for period pain

 

Period pain is experienced as cramps in the abdomen and pelvic area, and is caused by the uterine contractions that expel dead tissue after non-fertilised ovulation. There are several non-medicinal approaches to relieving the pain, including lying down, massage and heated pads. However, for some women over the counter pain relief is also necessary. In these cases Maxigesic’s unique combination of paracetamol to reduce the pain and ibuprofen to reduce inflammation provides effective double action pain relief to allow you to get on with your day.

At maximum dosage, the patented combination of Paracetamol 500mg and Ibuprofen 150mg in MAXIGESIC  provides double-action pain relief that is clinically proven to be more effective than Paracetamol or Ibuprofen alone¹.
