Paramol Tablets are a strong painkiller that helps treat a range of pain related symptoms. Buy Paramol to treat short lived moderate pain symptoms caused by conditions like Migraine, Period Pain, Headache, Dental Pain and Muscle and Joint Pain.

Buy Paramol to provide relief for moderate pain that cannot be relieved by paracetamol, ibuprofen and aspirin alone. Paramol contains two active ingredients, Paracetamol and Dihydrocodeine. Paracetamol is useful for controlling mild pain symptoms. It is suitable for most people and causes very few side effects. Dihydrocodeine is an opiate-based pain killer from the same family of drugs as morphine. Dihydrocodeine acts centrally on the brain to control pain signals and can be used for managing moderate pain. Use of Paramol should be limited to 3 consecutive days to reduce the risk of addiction.

Paramol can help manage pain associated with conditions such as:

  • Headache
  • Migraine
  • Backache
  • Toothache
  • Nerve Pain (Neuralgia)
  • Muscle Pain
  • Period Pain
  • Sore Throat
