"Cheap but work well"

I used to buy the well known brand names when it came to medicine thinking that tried and tested products were the best, but have now learned that with most headache tablets that contain paracetamol the ingredients are mostly the same so there's not much point in forking out a lot of money for a named brand when you can buy the same strenght of tablet or capsule for less than half the price.
These Boots Value Health Paracetamol cost me 16p which is 1p per caplet as you get 16 in the box.

They are 500mg which is good enough to take away most annoying headaches as the dosage is up to two tablets every four hours, but they aren't for children under 12years old so read the instuctions on dosage before taking.

The caplulets are white and can be easily swallowed with a glass of water, I would recommend these for headaches and period pains but for something like toothache which to me seems the worst pain of all time, then these just don't take it away and you will need something stronger.

No more than 8 caplets can be taken in 24 hours so be aware of what you have taken as it is easy to forget especially if you aren't thinking straight with a headache of are suffering from the flu, the capulets take about 10 minutes to start feeling the effects and do dull the pain of headaches and period pains but this isn't an all day cure and you will have to take two more tablets or your personal doseage within the four hours allowed between each dose.

If your looking for a cheap painkiller that works then these are worth trying. I am happy to recommend them to you if you need headache tablets.

Remember to keep all medicines out of reach of children.
