Maxigesic Tablets



MAXIGESIC is the first Paracetamol and Ibuprofen combination analgesic available in Australia, and this unique product offers patients a new alternative for pain relief.


Here are three key reasons for Doctors and other healthcare professionals to consider recommending MAXIGESIC.

  1.  Only MAXIGESIC delivers the maximum OTC dosage of Paracetamol and Ibuprofen over a 24 hour period
  2. MAXIGESIC provides more effective pain relief than either Paracetamol or Ibuprofen alone
  3. The modest efficacy of codeine-based combination analgesics may surprise you
  4. Maxigesic contains paracetamol and ibuprofen.

Paracetamol works to stop the pain messages from getting through to the brain. It also acts in the brain to reduce fever.

Ibuprofen belongs to a group of medicines called non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (or NSAIDs). It relieves pain and reduces inflammation (swelling, redness or soreness).

Maxigesic is used for temporary relief of pain associated with: headache, migraine headache, tension headache, sinus pain, toothache, dental procedures, backache, sore throat, arthritis, tennis elbow, period pain, muscular pain, rheumatic pain, aches and pains associated with colds and flu. Reduces fever.

Maxigesic is not addictive.
