Panadol Osteo is a bi-layer tablet incorporating an immediate release and a sustained release dose to help manage osteoarthritis pain. It can provide long-lasting relief from persistent pain.

With only 3 daily doses, each lasting up to 8 hours, Panadol Osteo may provide up to 24-hour relief from pain with just 3 doses.

The paracetamol in Panadol Osteo is released in 2 stages, with the first stage being released quickly, for rapid onset of action, and the second stage being released slowly over the day or night, to provide prolonged pain relief.
