Panadol® with Optizorb®: Release of pain relieving power of paracetamol in 5 minutes

It came as a surprise that there was a Panadol Philippine launch. I thought all the while that Panadol is already available in the Philippines. Maybe it is brand recall. My sisters may have given me Panadol when I needed one during my stay with them in San Francisco.

Who does not feel pain every now and then? I usually take paracetamol when I have fever or a severe headache that I cannot tolerate.

Pain is one of the greatest personal, social and economic burdens faced by people around the world, said John Sayers of GlaxoSmithKline (GSK). According to him, Panadol® has helped people find pain relief across 85 countries for over 50 years. Today, GSK brings Panadol, their fast acting paracetamol brand to the Philippines.

Panadol® with Optizorb® is the only paracetamol brand with the unique Optizorb disintegration system which allows the release of its medicine in as little as five minutes versus the regular paracetamol tablets. With this great rate of absorption, Panadol® with Optizorb® aims to deliver therapeutic concentrations to most people suffering from a variety of pain with common medical conditions such as stomach problems and heart disease. It is also well tolerated and will not irritate the stomach when used as directed.

Standard Paracetamol release is in 40-45 minutes. Disperal/disintegration of standard paracetamol is in 60-70 minutes.


I am not a doctor but I would advise anyone with chronic pain to visit their doctor. It may be a symptom of some underlying problem. Better be safe.

Panadol with Optizorb® comes in 36 x 10s dispenser box and each 10s catch cover has an SRP of 32 pesos and will be available at your favorite drugstore nationwide starting February 2014.
