Combogesic | Double Action Pain Relief | A Review

If you’re like me and not a huge fan of taking tablets, but want effective pain relief…look no further!

Combogesic is a new pain killer that combines both Paracetemol and Ibuprofen for faster double action pain relief, therefore your pain is resolved quicker and you have less tablets to take!


I don’t have an “issue” per say with taking tablets, but I like to consume as few tablets as possible. So Combogesic are perfect, plus who doesn’t want their pain resolved sooner? I know there are people out there who have a fear or anxiety associated with taking tablets, I feel Combogesic would be perfectly suited to those people as they are slimmer designed, therefore easier to swallow and as I’ve said before it reduces the amount of tablets you need to take.


They are for short term use, last week I had a tension headache which had a rapid onset and progressed very quickly as they tend to, I don’t get them very often but when I do they are extremely painful. I took two Combogesic and within 20 minutes I felt it start to ease and my headache had completely gone within 30 minutes.

I also suffer quite badly with period pain, especially since my second Cesarean, I tend to get a “pain” in my scar, it’s more of discomfort, but still unpleasant. I’ve seen my doctor about it previously and he just recommended over the counter painkillers for when I’m on my period, during my most recent period I took Combogesic and I was able to get on with my day better, being pain free and not having to worry about taking more painkillers a couple of hours later, because Combogesic covered me for 6 hours!


Combogesic is available in the following pharmacies, I got mine at my local Boots:

The reason you are here…your mum

“A Mother is she who can take the place of all others, but whose place can never be taken”

If you’ve seen my previous posts you will know my mum has been suffering with Trigeminal Neuralgia for the past 18 months. You may also of noticed that I’ve mentioned my Dad’s passing last year, he was only 50 and they had been together 32 years, they were one of the long lasting couples, together since their younger years. So it’s not been the best couple of years.

We’re now pushing to get more treatment options for her Neuralgia, so we took a trip to the doctors today, as you can imagine she was extremely nervous and worn out from the constant pain she has been in lately. Here are a few quotes from today’s doctor (bare in mind Neuralgia is severe pain in your cranial nerve(s))

“You need CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) not pain relief so you can train your brain to not feel the nerve pain”

“The pain is probably in your head, if the tablets we’ve given you are strong enough to stop the pain then don’t take them”

“If you are depressed I can’t refer you to a consultant”

And this one is a cracker, my mum said to him she just wants to discuss treatment options, she would be depressed even if she didn’t have Neuralgia, as my Dad passed away last year and his response….

“Yes but that’ not why you’re here is it”

The ignorance and rudeness of some people astounds me, this man has put in his years of training as a doctor, for what? To push a patient who is already depressed and in severe pain over the edge. Luckily my mum has a close network of support around her in her family, I’d dread to think what a person with no-one close would do in such a hopeless and already lonely situation.

We’re going to push it, we’ll see another doctor who will hopefully give her a referral. The only thing other than grief that comes out of losing one of your parents is the determination to look after the other one, don’t get me wrong I’ve always loved my mum, not only is she the reason I’m here but she is one of the best mothers I know (I may be biased), but I want my mum happy and healthy.

When you have kids, it’s not only amazing to feel the unconditional love everyone tells you about but it also suddenly makes you realise why your parents are overprotective worriers, because they feel that love for you!
