I bought Galpharm's 200mg Ibuprofen because Superdrug had run out of their basic own label ibuprofen, and it was the next cheapest at 40p for 16. If had gone a few doors up the road I could have actually got the same pack for 25p in Waitrose but I only discovered that afterwards. Other supermarket have own own brands ibuprofen may sell for even less but I didn't think 40p was a bad price to pay and I needed some quickly. As a non steroidal Anti Inflammatory drug they can be used for both pain relief and for relieving inflammation and fever. Galpharm products are available in a lot of chemists and pharmacies which makes them one of the easiest low cost ... Read the complete review

These were purchased from Superdrug priced at 40p for a packet of 16. I always stock up on ibuprofen & paracetomol when I see them at cheap price, so I picked a couple of these packets up. It wasn't a brand I'd seen before, but in no way do I have any brand loyalty when it comes to pain killers - a quick read of the active ingredients and if it's what I expect then it's in the basket! In terms of ibuprofen, the only thing I need to see is 200mg ibuprofen per tablet. That was no problem with this product, directly under the word IBUPROFEN written on the front in big white letters, it tells you "200mg coated tablets". The packaging seems to have ...

Review of Galpharm Ibuprofen Tablets. **The Product** Ibuprofen is a Non-Steroidal Anti-inflammatory drug, known as a NSAID, widely used as an 'over the counter' painkiller. Ibuprofen works by changing the body's response to pain, swelling and high temperature, making it useful for the relief of headaches, Rheumatic and muscular pain, migraine, dental pain, period pain, feverishness and for the relief of the symptoms associated with colds and 'flu. Galpharm Ibuprofen is presented in a recyclable cardboard box. The packaging is basically red in colour with the details in a white font and an image of a head and a 'pain target'. ...

I have had experience of many different types of painkillers, from the gentle effects of Paracetamol right through to the stronger prescribed drugs of Codeine. Ibuprofen falls somewhere between these drugs, and can be used for the relief of rheumatic and muscular pain, back ache, neuralgia, headache, dental pain, period pain, migraine and feverishness. The pack also states that they are useful for the relief of the symptoms of colds and flu. The pack contains 16 tablets and the box itself is mainly red with a silver finish to the front of the box. The front of the box contains informative information, the branding of 'Galpharm' and it also reads 'Maximum strength ... Read the complete review

In a previous review I mentioned that I normally take Panadol for general aches and pains and find it to be very effective. Because at the moment I still have a cold and am taking Beechams powders that contain paracetomol I am reluctant to take any additional tablets which are paracetomol based. For the past few days I have made the decision to switch to ibuprofen from advice given to me in the chemists and have been taking these alongside my Beechams powders. I was amazed to see the varying prices of Ibuprofen, from 35p for these Galpharm 200mg tables upto over £2.00 for a better known brand name, surely Ibuprofen is the same whichever brand you ...
