Galpharm Paracetamol Caplets
Advantages: Cheap, Work well, Easy to swallow, Good for headaches.
Disadvantages: Not the strongest or most effective paracetamol.
I am one of those people who will avoid medication whenever possible, and I would rather trudge through the day with a headache and hope it gets betters than take a tablet. I put this down to the fact that I struggle to swallow tablets. Recently, I have been getting bad headaches and I think this could be down to the cold weather. I decided that I needed to start carrying some paracetamol in my bag for in case I ever need them. I can't say I'm specific to a certain brand, so I like to just purchase the cheapest packet I can find, and this is why I purchased these paracetamol from the brand Galpharm.
I paid around 30p for these from Bodycare. These are difficult to get hold of in well known drugstores, but I often see them in cheaper, bargain stores such as Wilkinsons, Savers and similar stores. The price is excellent, so I like to grab a few boxes at once. When compared to more well known brands of paracetamol, this is just a fraction of the price, so what is the point in paying more if it does the job?
Paracetamol tablets can be taken for a variety of pains. As I earlier stated, I like to take mine for headaches and migraines. This is just me personally. However, these tablets are great for people who are suffering from sore throats, toothache and various other mild to moderate pains. Obviously if you are in considerable pain, I would recommend something stronger, as these are only suitable for milder pains.
As these are cheaper tablets, they just come in a pretty basic blue box. You get 16 caplets in a box which is good as it works out at about 2p per caplet. Something that attracted me to this brand was that it claimed these tablets were easy to swallow. The tablets are fairly small which makes it better for those who have difficulty swallowing tablets such as me. Another thing I have found effective with these is that you can easily snap the tablet into two. This makes it easier to swallow, and also better for when giving to children.
As always, be careful when taking paracetamol as you should only have one to two caplets every four hours, and you must not take more than four doses in 24 hours. If you are wanting to give these tablets to children aged between 6 and 12, only give them half a caplet or one every four hours. These are not recommended for children under the age of six.
I like to take two caplets at a time, and if the pain persists take some more later on in the day. I would recommend taking two as it will kick in twice as quickly and work much better. I only use these for mild pains such as headaches, and I have noticed that my headaches are eliminated quickly with these tablets. I have tried some cheap paracetamol in the past and not been pleased, however this is a great budget alternative to branded paracetamol. Within about half an hour of taking these, I definitely start to notice pain eliminating which is good. I don't find that two caplets is enough to combat migraines or strong headaches, but throughout the day when I take more it does make it much more bearable. The effectiveness of these tablets are great, and as they are easy to swallow they are great for children too.
Overall, I would really recommend the Galpharm Paracetamol caplets. They are cheap, effective and easy to swallow - which is everything I look for when buying pain relief tablets. I have previously paid well over £1.00 for branded paracetamol, whereas I could get three packs of these alternatively. Why pay more? Thanks for reading and hope it helps.
Summary: Why pay more when it does the job?
