Effective Pain Relief!
Review of Tesco Ibuprofen Tablets by justarube

Advantages: Relieve pain quickly; cheap.
Disadvantages: None.

Review of Feminax Express by mychicwedding

Advantages: Works quickly
Disadvantages: Wears off after a couple of hours

I suffer from excruciating period pains to the point where I am literally unable to stand because I'm doubled over in pain. For years I have been on prescription painkillers which have been great. However, when I ran out of my prescription drugs I had to ... Read review

I'd argue it's not placebo as I find them far more effective than regular ibuprofen; whether it's the effect of lysine or not I'm no scientist but I do know what my body tells me. Anadin Extra Soluble also works a treat! by Secre
That would be what is known as the placebo effect, seeing as all they contain in ibuprofen, the same as nurofen and the same that you can buy for 20p a pack by sandemp

Review of Galpharm Galprofen Ibuprofen by thedevilinme

Advantages: Help to fight toothache
Disadvantages: Not that effective when the toothache rages

Review of PMS Wild Tiger Balm by Thehonesttruth

Advantages: Really works on aches and pains
Disadvantages: Rather strong smelling

When I was young, there was one rule of which my brother and I were aware - never, EVER, get sick and grandmas house . The simple reason was that Grandma was Chinese - which in itself was no reason to panic . But, she was very traditional, and the mere s ... Read review

Review of C.M.S Supercool Freeze Spray by sharper_fin

Advantages: very effective for the price
Disadvantages: hard to find in shops

I normally stay clear of ‘bathroom cabinet’ products by companies that I’ve never heard of. I don’t want to put something in or on my body that’s not by a reputable company – or at the very least a well-known one. But after some serious gardening my shoul ... Read review

Review of Kool 'n' Soothe Migraine Sheets by ravingreviewer

Advantages: Work for a short time.
Disadvantages: High price for not very many.

Having been given a packet of these a number of years ago by a friend, I gave them a chance on and off whenever I got a migraine. I would I have to admit mostly use a wet flannel or towel on my head, but on occasions used one of these more really for the ... Read review

Anadin Liquifast. Fast working and effective. Work wonders.
Review of Anadin LiquiFast by janebd

Advantages: Very fast and effective. Good price if bought in right places.
