Review of Tesco Paracetamol Caplets by catsholiday

Advantages: Cheap and do the job for me
Disadvantages: Not effective for my husband's headaches/migraines

Tesco Paracetamol Caplets I do about 90% of my supermarket shopping at Tesco and buy a lot of their own brand items as I find they are just as efficient as the branded products and cost so much less. I buy these for myself and for our grown up children ... Read review

Advantages: portable, no need for tablets, relaxing
Disadvantages: doesn't work for all headaches

I get quite a few headaches, but I try not to take too many tablets to get rid of them. I spend most of my time at work on a computer and the rest sorting out staff issues so my head can often end up aching by mid-afternoon! I bought some 4head as an alte ... Read review

Advantages: Works quickly, effective, can be used anywhere

I used to find this was OK for easing migraine symptoms, but I tended to use it alongside Nurofen; for some reason, the cooling effect used to work for me (even though I needed painkillers for the actual migraine). by KateHurst
