Once a month I find myself suffering from a rather nasty migraine headache. Sometimes I'm lucky, and it only lasts for 24 hours. Other times it can be an unwelcome invader of my head for up to 72 hours. I used to be able to keep the pain in abeyance with Migraleve Complete, but in the last six...

Quick pain relief, easy to swallow

Can cause drowiness, can give you an upset stomach

I suffer from migraines and most over the counter tablets don't even hit the spot which is why I normally get my prescription of co-codamol from the doctors, or the next best thing Syndol! **ABOUT SYNDOL** Syndol is a "Locally Owned Brand" and is part of the SSL Group of companies with a licence...

Can cause drowsiness if you are susceptible

Have you ever experienced tightening of the muscles - in the neck and shoulder region I mean ? Has this been followed by a headache ? Well to a veteran headache sufferer such as myself, this is known as a tension headache. I suffer from a condition known as Scoliosis which few people will have...

“Anything for relief”

published 20/02/2013

Gave me relief, easy shape to swallow

Took a while to work

Before Christmas I had a really bad cold which I honestly think was bordering on flu, when I came to the end of the illness I had a headache that I was able to shift no matter what I tried and these tablets were recommended to me by a colleague who had also suffered the same illness. That very...

For three days solid I had a headache.....well at least I thought it was a headache! I took paracetamols regularly but still....it just wouldn't budge for love nor money. For once it wasn't a hangover and I knew I hadn't bashed my head or anything like that so when I spotted these in my local...

I often get severe migraines which paracetamol does not touch. They are the throbbing and nauseating variety which leave you unable to function, let alone work or look after small children. Therefore I was elated to find a tablet which worked and got rid entirely of the hideous pain and enabled...

Fast acting and effective

Can make you sleepy

The other day at work I developed a thumping headache and after rummaging through my desk and handbag realised I hadn't got any painkillers. Thinking I would have to pop out and get some my colleague came to my rescue and gave me two Syndol tablets. Although I had never taken these before I had...

I suffer from migraines and headaches frequently and I must say that I have tried just about EVERYTHING. But when I came across Syndol and first used them I knew that my prayers were answered (well I still get migraines but now I know I have the cure!) Boots do make a cheaper alternative to...

a bit pricey, leaves you slight hungover

I did feel slightly dopey and sleepy but nothing major and that could be put down to the fact I never get enough sleep! I took them 6 hourly that day and headache was completely gone when I got up to do nightshift with Sam later that night. I have used them several times since and again they have...

I was offered these tablets by the pharmacist when I couldn't get to Boots to buy my normal tension headache tablets (Boots own tension headache tablets). I have found them reasonable in removing tension headaches, but unfortunately not as good as the Boots' equivalent. The difference between...

I have suffered both with tension headaches and migraines on a regular basis for the last 12 years and up until now have not found anything that remotely touches the pain.

Syndol is a last-resort painkiller for when paracetomol and Nurofen just aren't performing. To be fair, Syndol does act in slightly different ways - its primary selling point is that it contains codeine, which has a far better effect on hard-to-shift tension headaches than the regular anti...
