What can Panadol Joint do for Robert?

Robert needs pain relief for osteoarthritis

Robert was an athlete when he was younger. As the years progressed he developed persistent knee pain and was diagnosed as having right-knee osteoarthritis. He’s already on other medications for his hypertension and diabetes but really needs help to ease his pain. He tries staying active by going for walks and gardening but some days it is a struggle. Robert wishes he could go back to being active again.

Panadol Joint with its bi-layer technology can offer Robert sustained pain relief for up to 8 hours. Containing paracetamol, it is also gentler compared to other prescription pain medications.
