==Sainsbury's Paracetamol Capsules==
Paracetamol is a major staple of the medicine cupboard in our house. Especially these last 9 months seeing as I am pregnant and really this is the only pain killer that you can take.
However having just come down with a cold it seems we had completely run out of the last lot of paracetamol tablets that we had in the cupboard (although someone left an empty packet in the cupboard!). So I sent the other half down the town to our local Sainsbury's to get some paracetamol Capsules.
I stated capsules as these are a lot easier to swallow I find and when my throat is so sore too I find these the best to take.
The packet of Paracetamol Capsules cost him a mere 65 pence and there were 16 individual capsules set out over two plastic "sheet" type cards in the cardboard box. The capsules were a standard size of just under an inch in length and the casing of the paracetamol powder was blue and white.
Each capsule is a 500 mg dose of paracetamol and by taking two at a time this is the recommended adult dose of 1 gram. It is suggested that the capsules are taken with a large glass of water. This is so that not only will the capsules dissolve quicker in the water and thus get into your system faster but also so that you don't get a capsule stuck on you oesophagus which can be uncomfortable and also give a sort of burn should the capsule start to dissolve against the tissue.
I found that these capsules gave me some kind of relief from my cold symptoms within around 15 minutes and lasted for a couple of hours. The paracetamol will bring down any temperature and generally aid your body in making you feel a little better so that your natural defences are able to fight off the germs easier.
The paracetamol capsules can only be taken every 4 hours which is standard for this type of medicine. I must say that these cheap paracetamol are absolutely no different from when you pay out for a branded type and for that reason I would only ever buy the cheap stores own version as they are a fraction of the price and just as effective.
I think these paracetamol capsules worked quickly and effectively whilst being a cheap price for the amount you get. They were easy to take and I think for these reasons deserve nothing but a top score of 5 out of 5 star and a high recommendation!
I do hope that this has been of some help/interest to you
Many thanks for taking the time to read.
Summary: a great mild pain killer
