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.

Relief for arthritis or rheumatic pain

Relief for arthritis 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’ mode of action MAXIGESIC delivers at least 32% more effective pain relief than either paracetamol or ibuprofen alone1,2.
MAXIGESIC is recommended for short-term pain relief only (a few days at a time). For longer-term relief from daily osteoarthritis pain consider using a topical treatment like Zostrix, which can be used every day.

In these cases MAXIGESIC’s unique combination of paracetamol to reduce the pain and ibuprofen to reduce inflammation provides effective ‘double-action’ pain relief that allows you to get on with your day.
