Product description

For the short term relief of acute moderate pain.

Syndol tablets contain four active ingredients for effective relief of acute moderate pain where paracetamol, ibuprofen or aspirin alone have not worked. If you're experiencing period pain, rheumatic pain, toothache, headaches or migraines then Syndol may be the temporary solution for you.

The four active ingredients in Syndol tablets are paracetamol, codeine, caffeine and doxylamine succinate. These work to ease your pain in the following ways:

Paracetamol: helps to block the nerves that transmit the pain impulses to the brain.

Codeine: helps to reduce the brain's awareness of these pain impulses.

Caffeine: increases mental activity and enhances the pain relieving effects of the paracetamol and codeine.

Doxylamine succinate: a first-generation antihistamine that can reduce feelings of tension.
