  1. Yay! Finally! This pain reliever looks very promising. Yung mga typical kasi na paracetamol, matagal umepekto and minsan hindi talaga naepekto. Ang tendency, bibili ka ng bibili and you need to wait bago ka talaban. But with the advanced formula ng Panadol, it seems very effective. Bibili ako agad nito when it release sa market. Good thing is that, it is also safe at maraming usage! Best paracetamol I've ever heard. Thank you for sharing Ms. Rochelle! Updated kami sa mga bagay bagay because of your blog. Super thanks! Keep safe always! <3 ;)

  2. Parang may nakita na kong gamot na Panadol ang nakalagay, generic ata yun. di ko lang matandaan :) hmm. Anyway, thanks for this post Ms. Rochelle. Tsaka affordable sya ha? ang isa bale ay 3 pesos something? tama ba? same as the price of Biogesic? ma-try nga yung product na yan, wala namang mawawala eh. :)

  3. Wow! This is nice! It can relieve pain in just 5 minutes. Anyone can benefit with this 'coz they won't wait and suffer pain ng matagal. And as a nurse, okay na okay 'to sa mga patiente. hindi na sila masyadong magrereklamo sa pain dahil sa tagal ba naman mag effect ng gamot. This is safe too.. and yay pwede din for period pain.. I always suffer sa dysmenorrhea during my monthly visit eh. We're so happy they bring it here in the Philippines ;)

  4. This is maybe a good one.I hate when pain reliever doesn't cure the pain easily. This one is promising so I hope it could really cure the pain faster.

  5. I love the packaging! hehe. I haven't heard about this product.. parang ngayon ko pa lang tlaga narinig about it. I think this product is worth to try, hope I can also read your thoughts when you try this one. hehehe. Pero sobrang affordable, di nakakapanghinayang na subukin.

  6. Well I just hope it works for me because honestly, paracetamol based medicines don't work for me anymore especially for migraine attacks..Although , would ask my physician is ok with me and might try 1-2 tabs before shifting.

  7. Super helpful blog ! Thanks for this Ms. Rochelle. Naisip ko pa habang binabasa ko 'to na perfect sana yung med na yan para sa sakit ng katawan ko ngayon after my OJT and Tour this past few days. Kaso sa Feb. pa pala ang release niya d2 sa Philippines .. huhu

    Anyway, super ganda po tlaga ng mga nabasa ko. Hindi lang siya basta-bastang gamot na may specific na use e. Mapasakit sa ulo, katawan, fever, ulcer at iba pang sakit ang pwede niyang tulungang maibsan at malunasan. This is really helpful po.. Lalong-lalo na sa mga hardworking Filipinos para matustusan ang kabuhayan ng pamilya nila.

    I'll be waiting for this talaga and I am sure sobrang papatok 'to dito sa Pilipinas. I also hope na marami ang matulungan. Akalain mo yun? in just 5 minutes eepekto na agad :) That pain releiver is so awesome ! ♥
