Get the best of both Paracetamol and Ibuprofen for effective pain relief with MAXIGESIC

We are all too familiar with how hectic our days can get, right mama? Dropping the kids off, rushing to meetings, getting home in time for dinner… And while we’re all for self-care and taking a step back when things just get too much, what do we do about days where we just have no choice – made worse if we’re in discomfort? Powering through pain is not an option, and for that there’s MAXIGESIC®.

This little miracle worker of a painkiller has recently been launched in Singapore, and is the only patented combination of Paracetamol and Ibuprofen in the Singapore market. MAXIGESIC® is a unique blend of Paracetamol 500mg and Ibuprofen 150mg that provides at least 32% more effective pain relief than either Paracetamol or Ibuprofen alone and effectively reduces fever and inflammation.

MAXIGESIC® is currently sold in over 15 countries worldwide, including the UK and Australia. Previously recommended and prescribed by Singaporean doctors since 2016, MAXIGESIC® is now available for the first time as an over-the-counter medicine in pharmacies! All it takes is a simple, flexible dose of one to two tablets every six hours as required, and up to a maximum of 8 tablets per day.

It’s perfect for mamas and dads with busy lifestyles – juggling the high demands at work and at home means you can’t afford to let pain bring you down when it matters the most.

Your double action life needs double action pain relief, mama!

MAXIGESIC® is now available in Watson’s, Unity and selected Independent pharmacies in packs of 10 and 20 tablets.

WARNING: Do NOT combine with any other Paracetamol or Ibuprofen containing medicines. Do not exceed the daily recommended dose.

MAXIGESIC® should not be taken: If you are allergic to ibuprofen, paracetamol, aspirin or other anti-inflammatory medicines, in the last 3 months of pregnancy, or in the presence of a stomach ulcer or stomach disorders, impaired liver or kidney function, or heart failure.
